TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. + freezing Bake: 15 min. YIELD:15 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 quarts mint chocolate chip ice cream, softened
  • CHOCOLATE SAUCE:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk

Directions

  • 1. Line a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with waxed paper; grease the paper and set aside. Sift together the flour, cocoa and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form.
  • 2. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and lemon juice until thick and lemon-colored. Fold in egg whites. Fold in reserved dry ingredients just until blended. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched in center.
  • 3. Cool for 5 minutes. Invert cake onto a kitchen towel dusted with confectioners' sugar. Gently peel off waxed paper. Roll up cake in the towel jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • 4. Unroll cake; spread ice cream to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up again. Cover and freeze for at least 3 hours before serving.
  • 5. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the sugar, cocoa and butter to a boil. Add water; return to a boil. Stir in milk; boil 3 minutes longer. Cool to room temperature. Serve over ice cream roll. Yield: 15 servings.
