Moist Lemon Angel Cake Roll Recipe

  • 9 egg whites
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • Yellow food coloring, optional
  • Additional confectioners' sugar


  • Place the egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with waxed paper; lightly coat paper with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Add vanilla and cream of tartar to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Fold in flour, about 1/4 cup at a time.
  • Carefully spread batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes.
  • Turn cake onto a kitchen towel dusted with 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar. Gently peel off waxed paper. Roll up cake in the towel jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • In a large saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in water until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
  • Remove from the heat. Gently stir in lemon juice, peel and food coloring if desired. Cool to room temperature without stirring.
  • Unroll cake; spread filling to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up again. Place seam side down on a serving plate; sprinkle with additional confectioners' sugar.
I love Lemon in any dessert... So Courtney I have not forgot about you and how you love to do crafts with your mommy and since this 3C's is named after you here goes my first craft post in quite a longtime and hope you and your Mommy are doing well.
Valentine's Day Craft
* poster board – white, red, or pink
* black marker
* red & pink felt, 3 squares each
* dry beans – any kind or size
* sewing machine or hot glue gun

Fold your poster board in half. Then cut a large heart out. Get it as big as you can. Then open it up and draw in your lines. You’ll need two vertical and two horizontal lines. Use a pencil to make the lines first, then trace over it with a black marker. I used the extra piece of poster board left over to make nice straight lines.

Now you’re ready to make your heart bean bags. (You could just use heart paper or flat felt hearts, but bean bags are much more fun to play with.) You should be able to get 4 flat felt hearts out of each felt square.

Then place two together and sew or hot glue around.  I like to use a zig zag stitch when sewing, making it pretty or you could use pinking shears for a pretty edge as well. Make sure to leave at least an inch of space to fill in with the dry beans.

Now fill your bags about half way full with beans. You want to be able to close that small hole and sew or glue it together, and if there are too many beans, it will be hard to seal it shut.

Now you’re ready to play. Find an opponent and let the games begin!
