Apple ice cream roll

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 larges Eggs
1 cup Sugar
2 cups Applesauce
1 cup All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon Salt
Powdered sugar
1 quart Vanilla ice cream

* Have ice cream slightly softened. Use only a very good quality applesauce that is not too thin.

1. Line a greased 15 x 10 x 1-inch jelly-roll pan with waxed paper; grease paper.

2. Place eggs in a mixing bowl; beat at high speed for 5 minutes.

Gradually beat in sugar and ½ cup applesauce.

3. Sift flour, baking powder, ¾ teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together. Blend flour mixture into egg mixture, using low speed.

Spread batter in pan.

4. Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 15 minutes or until cake is lightly browned and springs back when pressed gently. Sprinkle kitchen towel with powdered sugar; immediately invert cake onto towel.

5. Remove waxed paper; roll cake and towel together from narrow end.

Let cake completely cool.

6. Unroll cake, trimming edges if desired. Remove from towel and spread with softened ice cream; re-roll. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap or foil and freeze.

7. Blend remaining 1-½ cups applesauce and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.

Chill. When ready to serve, cut roll into slices and top each slice with chilled applesauce. Serve with whipped cream if desired.
