Chocolate Cherry Lincoln Log
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min. + freezing
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup baking cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking powder

- 1 quart cherry ice cream, softened
- 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
- 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 375°. Line a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan with waxed paper; grease the paper and set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs 3 minutes. Gradually add sugar; beat 2 minutes or until mixture becomes thick and lemon-colored. Stir in water and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; fold into egg mixture (batter will be thin).

This cake is lovely and my guests liked it. I got lots of compliments on it. Since cherries are now in season, I pitted and halved about a cup full and added them to the ice cream. Yum. Next time I make this I am going to try some type of mint ice cream with the same chocolate cake recipe.
