Fantastic Lemon Roll
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp orange rind
1/3 c. fresh squeezed orange juice
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
Beat Eggs till frothy. Add sugar gradually while beating. Beat until thick and light yellow (about 1 min) add vanilla, orange and juice. Beat. Add dry ingred and mix. Pour into parchment lined 10x15" pan and bake at 350 for 15 min or until golden brown and spongy to the touch. Sprinkle 1/3 c. icing sugar onto a clean dishtowel and then flip the baked cake over onto the towel and roll up and place on a cooling rack until cool. Meanwhile...
1 c. sugar
1 Tbsp lemon rind
1/2 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 c. whipping cream
Whisk all ingred except the cream in a saucepan over very low heat and cook until thickened. (about 15 min) Cool. Whip cream and then fold into lemon mixture.
Now to put it all together! Spread all but 1/2 c. (at least) of the filling on the inside of unrolled cake. Roll up again and place on serving platter. Use the 1/2 c. set aside to spread on top and then garnish with fresh strawberries. Chill for about 4 hours before serving.
I wish I would have taken a picture of my roll before I served it up last night but I forgot!
I also made some choc chip cookies last night. I used the recipe that won Jeni's contest and I must say it is quite delish! I think it's my new fave. They turned out perfect! I only had one. I'm trying to limit myself. I think a Whopper Jr. Value Meal, chimichangas, a full on roast chicken dinner, lemon roll, zucchini choc chip loaf and some chocolate in between all those is enough for about a 24 hour period don'tcha think?
