Well, soon it’s going to be Christmas, and I found this PURELY AWESOME recipe for a Gingerbread Cake Roll with Eggnog Whipped Cream. There’s not one BIT of that name that I don’t enjoy! And with all the baking I do, it will be nice to have something on my table that DOESN’T take that long to make, either!

I love ANYTHING THAT IS GINGERBREAD FLAVOR…so I’m looking forward to making this dessert!!!

So let’s start; you mix the cake with no sugar added applesauce and molasses…then with the flour goes the cinnamon, allspice and ginger.  It now time to bake in a 10 x 15 inch jelly roll pan…and 12 minutes later…you’re ready to turn out the cake IMMEDIATELY on to a kitchen towel that is SPRINKLED LIBERALLY WITH POWDERED SUGAR.  Once it’s rolled in the towel let it cool for 2 hours.

Then it’s time to make the filling; then spread into the middle of cake roll…make sure you leave an EDGE…now you re-roll the cake.

You can wrap-it in plastic and refrigerate for up to 24 hours…or serve it now…that is once you top the cake-roll with whipped cream and dust it cinnamon…and you are ready to indulge!

Here’s what you need:

For the cake:
3 eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup no sugar added applesauce
1/2 cup molasses Coupons
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the filling:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 tablespoons eggnog (I used light)
