Cake slices, strawberry ice cream and ganache make this a special dessert. It takes some time to prepare but it can be stored in the freezer for up to a week before serving.—Suzette Jury, Keene, California

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup seedless strawberry jam
  • 18 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 cups strawberry ice cream, softened
  • Whipped cream and fresh strawberries

Directions

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.
In a small bowl, beat egg yolks on high speed for 5 minutes or until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually beat in 1/4 cup sugar. Beat in oil and vanilla. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together; gradually add to yolk mixture and mix well.
Beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold into batter. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
Bake at 350° for 8-12 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes. Invert 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 short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Line a 4-qt. bowl with plastic wrap. Unroll cake; spread jam evenly over cake to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up again. Cut into 1/2-in. slices; place in prepared bowl, completely covering the bottom and sides. Cover and freeze until cake is firm.
For ganache, place chocolate in a bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
Spread 1 cup of ice cream into cake-lined bowl; top with 1/2 cup ganache. Repeat layers four times. Top with remaining ice cream. Cover and freeze until firm.
Just before serving, remove from the freezer and invert onto a serving plate. Remove bowl and plastic wrap. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting into wedges. Garnish with whipped cream and strawberries. Yield: 14 servings.
