Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper and lightly grease. Sift together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
  2. Beat together egg and water in a large bowl, then whisk in white sugar, and molasses. Fold in the sifted dry ingredients until smooth, then pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until the cake springs back to the touch, about 15 minutes. When done, remove from oven, and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Then cover pan with a moistened towel, and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.
  4. To assemble, remove cake from the jelly roll pan, and invert onto a fresh sheet of parchment paper; remove and discard the old parchment paper. Sprinkle evenly with confectioners' sugar, then spread evenly with whipped cream. Roll up from narrow end to narrow end, forming a firm spiral log. Wrap in the parchment paper and chill until ready to serve.

I make a ginger roll cake very similar to this one - but this recipe has way better cake! It's easier to roll the cake up in the parchment paper/towel while hot, then allow to cool. Unroll to ice and it rolls back up in a snap without breaking :-) I also use a honey cream icing sometimes instead of whipped cream (2tbsp honey, 8oz unsalted butter and 1/3 cup icing sugar blended). Yum!
