Chocolate ice cream roll cake:

Ingredients:

For Chocolate sponge cake:

5 eggs
• 1/4 cup flour (maida)
• 2tbsp corn flour
• 3tbsp cocoa powder (Cadbury cocoa is the best)
• ½ tsp salt
• ¾ cup granulated white sugar
• 1tsp vanilla essence
Other:
1 litre chocolate ice cream
2tbsp chopped almonds
2tbsp icing sugar

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease and line one 15 inch baking pan and line the bottom of pan with parchment or wax paper.
In a bowl, sift the flour, salt, corn flour and cocoa powder.
Separate egg whites from yolks (make sure there are no traces of yolk in whites, otherwise it will be difficult to beat into a white mixture).
In a large bowl, beat Egg Yolks and 3 Tbsp Sugar until smooth, creamy and light yellow (approx 5 minutes). Add Vanilla and mix through.
In a clean mixing bowl, with the whisk attachment beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the sugar and beat at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.
Add 1/3 Egg Whites mixture into Egg Yolk mixture and gently fold in.
Then sift about 1/2 of the flour mixture over the egg mixture using a rubber spatula or whisk.
Add 1/3 Egg Whites and continue to fold in.
Add remaining Flour/Corn Starch mixture and continue to fold in.
Add remaining Egg Whites and gently fold in until entire batter is evenly mixed.
Pour into your pan, smoothing the top.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove cake from pan (with parchment paper) and place on a cooling rack for 5 min and remove the parchment paper.
