How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 450°.
  • In a large greaseless bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry.
  • While still beating, add the sugar tablespoon by tablespoon.
  • Continue to beat while adding the yolks one by one.
  • Add the salt and flour and continue to beat only until combined.
  • Spread immediately evenly in a parchment-lined cooky pan with raised edges.
  • Cover loosely with foil (it should not touch the batter) and bake in lower part of oven for 10 minutes only.
  • While baking, prepare a large clean tea towel by spreading it on a flat surface and sprinkling it lightly with powdered sugar.
  • Remove foil and brown for 2 further minutes. Don't let it get too brown!
  • Turn hot cake out onto tea towel and pull off the parchment paper gently.
  • Roll the towel up loosely and allow the cake to cool in this rolled position.
  • When cool, unroll and fill with any of the following:
  • Lemon curd, chocolate cream, whipped cream and fresh fruit, sweetened cream cheese or Chantilly cream, chopped cherries and nuts in vanilla filling, etc. etc.
  • Chill until serving; slice in about 1 1/2" slices and turn onto plate to serve.

    I made this today. Except I added 2 tbls. of cocoa in with the flour. Next time I think I'll add 4. I made a filling with 2 pkg. of Dream Whip, 2 tbls. cocoa and 3/4 cup skim milk. This is really good and perfect for someone like me who's watching calories. For 12 pieces it works out to 106 calories a slice! I will absolutely make this again.I'd love to do one with cream cheese and lemon! Thanks!
