TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min. + freezing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water

  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 4 teaspoons confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 3 cups coffee ice cream, softened
  • White and semisweet chocolate curls, optional

Directions

  • 1. 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 eggs for 3 minutes. Gradually add sugar; beat for 2 minutes or until mixture becomes thick and lemon-colored. Beat in water and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; fold into egg mixture (batter will be thin).

  • 5. Unroll cake; spread ice cream evenly over cake to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up again. Place seam side down on a serving platter. Freeze until firm. Just before serving, dust with remaining confectioners' sugar. Garnish with chocolate curls if desired. Yield: 10 servings.
