1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 cup ground pecans
1 cup whipping cream
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking cocoa
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Chocolate shavings and additional confectioners’ sugar, optional

How to prepare

In a mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and confectioners’ sugar until thick, about 5 min.. In another bowl, beat whites until soft peaks form; fold into yolk mixture. Fold in pecans until well blended (batter will be thin). Grease a 15x10x1 in. baking pan; line with waxed paper and grease and flour paper. Spread batter into pan. Bake at 375’F for 10-15 min. or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Turn onto a linen towel dusted with confectioners’ sugar. Peel off paper and roll cake up in towel, starting with short end. Cool on wire rack 1 hour. Meanwhile, beat the cream, sugar, cocoa and vanilla in a mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Carefully unroll cake. Spread filling over cake; roll up again. Refrigerate. If desired, garnish with chocolate shavings and confectioners’ sugar. Yield: 10-12 servings. Note: This cake does not contain flour.
