Servings 12



  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ⅓ c sugar
  • 6 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ⅓ c flour
  • ½ c cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt

Ice Cream and Toppings

  • 48 oz cookies 'n cream ice cream
  • ½ c whipping cream
  • ¾ c chocolate chips (I prefer semi-sweet)
  • ½ c whipped topping
  • chocolate sandwich cookies (ie. Oreos) optional
  • sprinkles optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 12x15" sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Use oil or cooking spray to grease the walls of the pan and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs.
  • Add the sugar, water and vanilla and mix well.
  • Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 17-18 minutes.
  • Let the cake cool for 5 minutes (no longer!).
  • Take the cake out of the pan and place on a cloth dusted with powdered sugar.
  • Roll the cake up (with the cloth) and leave on the counter until completely cool.
  • When cooled, unroll the cake, remove the cloth and cover with ice cream. I've found that it works best to scoop the ice cream on top, let it soften for 5 minutes, then spread it so it's nice and smooth.
  • Re-roll (you'll want to roll from the short side of the cake) and wrap in plastic wrap to freeze.
  • Freeze for 6+ hours. Remove from the freezer 20-30 minutes before serving.
  • To make the chocolate ganache, in a microwave-safe bowl, heat the ½ cup whipping cream until hot (but not quite boiling). Add the chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes before stirring. Stir until smooth.
  • To serve, place the ice cream roll on a platter, pour ganache overtop, dollop with whipped cream and garnish with Oreos and sprinkles.
  • Slice and enjoy!
