I suppose that this could be called an ice cream pinwheel cake. You're rolling the cake pieces around a center core creating a uniquely delicious circle cake. Your favorite ice cream cake accented with strawberries and whipped cream for that one of a kind treat.
13 Oreo cookies, finely crushed
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Water
1 square Unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
1 tsp Vanilla
3 Eggs, separated
3 Tablespoons Unsweetened cocoa
3 cups Ice Cream, any flavor, softened
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip, thawed
4 Strawberries, sliced
Oven Temp ~ 375°
Baking Time ~ 10 to
Pan Type ~ 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan
Mix the cookie crumbs, sugar, flour, baking powder and
salt, set aside. Mix the water, melted chocolate and vanilla, set aside. Beat
egg yolks in large bowl with electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes or until
thick and lemon colored. Gradually add flour mixture alternately with the
chocolate mixture, beating until well blended after each addition. Beat egg
whites with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form, gently stir
into batter. Spread circle cake batter into prepared pan.
Bake until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Lift cake from pan using foil handles. Invert cake onto clean cloth towel sprinkled with cocoa, remove foil.
Cut cake crosswise into thirds, place two of the cake pieces on wire racks to cool. Roll up the remaining cake piece along with the towel, starting at one of the short ends of cake, cool completely.
Unroll cake and remove towel, spread cake with 1 cup of the ice cream. Re-roll cake, place seam side down in center of serving plate. Spread 1 cup of remaining ice cream onto each of the remaining 2 cake pieces. Wrap 1 of the pieces around the cake roll on the serving plate, with the ice cream layer facing the center cake roll. Repeat with the remaining cake roll, wrapping it around the other side of the center cake roll. Frost sides of cake with 1 cup of the whipped topping. Freeze for 4 hours or until firm. Remove Circle Ice Cream cake from freezer about 5 minutes before serving to soften slightly. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup whipped topping and strawberries just before serving. Store circle cake leftovers in the freezer.
