  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups ice cream, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk, heated to 160° to 170°
  • 1 cup sugar


  • 1. Let eggs stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Line a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan with waxed paper; grease and flour paper; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks on high for 3 minutes or until lemon-colored. Gradually add sugar and vanilla, beating until thick and pale yellow. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking powder; gradually add to egg yolk mixture Beat on low until well mixed (mixture will be thick).
  • 3. In another large bowl and with clean beaters, beat egg whites and salt on high speed until soft peaks form. Fold a fourth of egg whites into the batter, then fold in remaining whites.

    This was a hit at the party. You do need to watch the cooking time on the cake. I undercook the cake a little to keep it moist and easy to roll.
