PREP: 0:30
COOK: 0:14


½ c. cake flour (not self-rising)
⅓ c. Unsweetened cocoa powder
¾ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
5 large eggs
¾ c. granulated sugar
1½ tsp. vanilla extract
1½ tsp. peppermint extract
2 pt. peppermint-bark ice cream

½ c. heavy cream
6 oz. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
2 tbsp. dark corn syrup
1½ tsp. vanilla extract
1½ tsp. peppermint extract
Dark or white chocolate curls or shavings
confectioners' sugar


1-Cake: Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1-inch jelly-roll pan with nonstick foil. In a small bowl, combine cake flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

2-Separate egg whites and yolks into 2 large bowls. Beat whites on medium-high speed until foamy. Gradually beat in 1/2-cup of the sugar. Continue to beat on high speed just until stiff (but not dry) peaks form.

3-Using same beaters, beat yolks with the remaining 1/4-cup sugar and extracts until thickened, about 3 minutes. On low speed, beat in flour mixture until blended. Stir in 1/4 of beaten egg whites into mixture. Fold in remaining whites. Spread in prepared pan; smooth top. Bake 12 minutes or until top springs back when gently pressed. Let cool 2 minutes on a wire rack.

4-Dust a clean towel with confectioners' sugar; invert cake onto towel. Remove pan; carefully peel off foil. Starting from the short end, roll up cake in towel; place seam side down on wire rack; cool completely.

5-Filling: Unroll cake and spread evenly with ice cream. Roll up cake. Wrap tightly in nonstick foil and freeze, seam side down, overnight until firm.

6-Glaze: In a small saucepan, heat cream, chocolate, and corn syrup over low heat until chocolate is melted and glaze is shiny and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in extracts; cool to room temperature.

7-Unwrap cake; trim ends. Place cake on a wire rack over waxed paper. Pour glaze along top of cake roll, spreading with a spatula to cover sides. Garnish top of cake with chocolate curls or shavings. Freeze cake until firm.
