  • In a large bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and pale yellow. Fold in flour mixture. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat 4 egg whites until foamy. Gradually add white sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. beat in vanilla. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly tapped. Turn cake out onto a towel dusted with confectioners' sugar, and roll up until cool.

  • To Make Frosting: In a small saucepan, stir together brown sugar and water. Cook, stirring constantly, until sugar spins a thread when dropped from a spoon. In a large bowl, beat together remaining 2 egg whites until foamy. Slowly pour brown sugar liquid into egg whites while beating. Beat until frosting forms stiff peaks. Unroll cake and apply frosting in an even layer. Roll cake back up and refrigerate.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I love roll cakes and I was looking for a new recipe to try. I was having my father-in-law over for dinner and he loves chocolate so I thought this recipe sounded perfect. I followed the directions but it came out horrible- the "cake" completely fell apart when it came out of the pan. The frosting was easy to make so I had all of this frosting and cake crumbs. So my husband just mixed it all together and was going to eat it anyway. But it ended up tasting pretty bad. The cake was a very weird consistency and the frosting just tasted like gooey brown sugar. Sorry to be negative but this cake sadly did not turn out... Read More

This is the worst roll cake I've ever made from the consistency to the taste. There must be something wrong with the ingredients list. So disappointing. You're left with a bland mess of crumbs. Never again! Read More
