Why I Love This Recipe

My hubby is from Montreal and I made this for his family one christmas. It became a favorite.


Ingredients You'll Need

eggs
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
extra cocoa for dusting


Directions

Beat eggs on high speed until very thick and lemon-colored. (If eggs are not beaten enough, cake will be heavy and rubbery.)


Gradually beat in sugar.


On low speed, beat in water and vanilla.


Add dry ingredients gradually, beating just until smooth.


Pour into a heavy jelly-roll (10x15-inch) pan lined with greased and floured foil. (Fit foil snuggly into pan.)


Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes. Immediately loosen cake from edges of pan and invert onto a clean towel that has been sprinkled with cocoa.


Carefully peel foil from cake.


Trim edges of cake if necessary.


While cake is hot, roll both cake and towel, starting with the narrow end, and place on wire rack, seam side down.


Cool for at least 30 minutes.
