Why I Love This Recipe

My sister made this wonderful cake roll for our Thanksgiving dessert, and it is a winner!

Ingredients You'll Need

½ cup granulated sugar, divided
1 cup fresh cranberries, chopped
½ cup walnuts, finely chopped or ground
1/3 cup cake flour, sifted
2 Tbl. cornstarch
2 Tbl. butter, melted and cooled
2 Tbl. cornstarch
1 teasp. grated orange rind
2 Tbl. butter, melted and cooled


Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease a 15-1/2”X10-1/2”X1” baking sheet, line it with parchment or waxed paper and grease the paper.

In a large bowl, beat egg whites till foamy; gradually add ¼ cup granulated sugar and beat till stiff peaks form. Set aside.

In a small bowl, beat yolks and remaining ¼ cup sugar till light and fluffy (about 3 minutes.)

Fold the cranberries, walnuts, flour, cornstarch, and orange rind into the egg yolk mixture; then gently fold that mixture into the beaten egg whites.

Fold in the melted butter.

Turn the batter into the prepared pan and bake 20 minutes, or till cake springs back when touched lightly in center.
