May 27: Chocolate Ice Cream Roll

From my Relief Society sisters in Boise.

3 eggs
1 c sugar
1/3 c water
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c flour
1/4 c cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Heat oven to 375. Line jelly roll pan with aluminum foil or waxed paper; grease generously. Beat eggs on high speed until very thick and lemon colored, about 5 minutes. Beat in sugar gradually. Then beat in water and vanilla on low speed. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt gradually, beating just until batter is smooth. Pour into pan. Bake 12-15 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately loosen cake from edges of pan; invert on towel sprinkled generously with powdered sugar. Carefully remove foil. Trim off stiff edges if necessary. Carefully roll cake and towel. Cool on wire rack at last 30 minutes. Unroll cake; remove towel. Spread 1 pint softened vanilla ice cream on cake. Roll up, seam side down, wrap in plastic wrap then foil. Freeze until firm, about 6 hours. Remove from freeze 15 minutes before serving.
