Gingerbread Cake Roll

Ingredients
1
recipe Almond Pastry Cream
4
eggs
1
teaspoon baking powder
1
teaspoon ground ginger
3/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground cloves
1/3
cup molasses
1
recipe Maple Glaze
1/4
cup chopped almonds, toasted

Directions

  1. Prepare Almond Pastry Cream; chill as directed. Separate eggs. Allow egg whites and yolks to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Line bottom of pan with waxed paper or parchment paper; grease paper. Set pan aside. In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, salt, and cloves; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium mixing bowl beat egg yolks with an electric mixer on high speed about 5 minutes or until thick and lemon color. Beat in molasses just until combined.
  3. Thoroughly wash beaters. In a large mixing bowl beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, beating until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Fold egg yolk mixture into beaten egg whites. Sprinkle flour mixture over egg mixture; fold in gently just until combined. Spread batter evenly in the prepared baking pan.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately loosen edges of cake from pan and turn cake out onto a clean kitchen towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Remove waxed paper. Roll towel and cake into a spiral, starting from a short side of the cake. Cool on a wire rack. Meanwhile, prepare Maple Glaze.
  5. Unroll cake; remove towel. Spread cake with Almond Pastry Cream to within 1 inch of the edges. Roll up cake; trim ends. Drizzle with Maple Glaze and sprinkle with almonds. Cover and chill for up to 6 hours.
