  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • WHITE CREAM FILLING
  • CHOCOLATE GLAZE

Directions

  • 1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan with foil; generously grease foil.
  • 2. Beat egg whites in large bowl until soft peaks form; gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, a tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed of mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • 3. Beat egg yolks and vanilla in medium bowl on high speed about 3 minutes; gradually add remaining 1/3 cup sugar. Continue beating 2 additional minutes or until mixture is thick and lemon-colored.
  • 4. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gently fold into egg yolk mixture alternately with water just until mixture is smooth. Gradually fold chocolate mixture into egg whites; spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
  • 5. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly in center. Immediately loosen cake from edges of pan; invert on clean linen towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Carefully peel off foil. Immediately roll cake in towel starting from narrow end; place on wire rack. Cool completely.
  • 6. Prepare WHITE CREAM FILLING. Unroll cake; remove towel. Spread with filling; reroll cake. Spread CHOCOLATE GLAZE over top and sides. Cover; refrigerate until just before serving. Garnish with WHITE LEAVES and candied cherries, if desired. Cover; refrigerate leftover dessert. 18 servings.
