  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 c. cake flour sifted
  • 6 tbsp. orange juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c. confectioner's sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 3 tsp. Clabber Girl Cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 lg. eggs
  • 1 c. sugar granulated
  • 6 tbsp. orange juice

Instructions

Cake Preparation: Grease and flour a 15 X 10-inch jelly roll pan, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Beat eggs until light and lemon-colored; add sugar gradually, beating until mixture is very thick. Add the orange juice and mix until blended. Sift together flour, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, and salt. Add to the mixture, mixing only enough to blend smoothly.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Sift confectioners' sugar on wax paper (or parchment paper); turn out cake onto wax paper and roll up as for jelly roll.

Filling Preparation: In a small bowl add 1/4 c. orange juice to the beaten egg yolk; add sugar and Clabber Girl Corn Starch then mix thoroughly. Heat remaining orange juice in medium saucepan and then add egg mixture slowly, stirring constantly with wire whisk. Stir until thickened; cook over medium heat 5 minutes more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add butter and salt. Allow cooling.

When cake and filling are both cooled, unroll cake; spread filling evenly over cake. Roll up as for jelly roll (without waxed paper) and dust top with confectioners' sugar. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
