Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Line a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with waxed paper; grease the paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks on high speed for 5 minutes or until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Stir in vanilla. Sift flour and cocoa together twice; gradually add to yolk mixture and mix well (batter will be very thick).
  3. Beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold into batter. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
  4. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes. Invert onto a kitchen towel dusted with baking cocoa. Gently peel off waxed paper. Roll up cake in the towel jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and dry pudding mix until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Gradually beat in cream until thick.
  6. Unroll cake; spread 2-1/2 cups filling evenly over cake to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up again. Place seam side down on a serving platter. Frost top, sides and ends with remaining filling. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  7. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the chips, jam and cream. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes or until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in extract. Serve with cake. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 10 servings.

This was outstanding. People are still commenting on the flavor and how elegant it was. I am over my assumption that rolled cakes are labor intensive and time consuming. This is a keeper!!!
