@rrpell   The Russian Cream may taste light, but these are the nutrition facts.  I might eat it, but not much else that day, lol.

Yikes!  Those are some impressive numbers for the Russian Cream.  I think I’ll go heavier on the raspberries and have a light touch on the cream.

Re: IDEAS FOR EASTER DESERT NEEDED

Going to make this, sorry I can't credit the source, found on FB the other day....

Double Lemon Roll Cake

1 hour 20 minutes to prepare serves 8-10

 

INGREDIENTS

Cake:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 large eggs

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 tablespoons lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Powdered sugar, as needed

Frosting:

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature

3-4 cups powdered sugar, plus more, as needed

1 teaspoon lemon extract

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

2 tablespoons milk, plus more as needed


PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350º F and line a jelly roll baking sheet with parchment paper and non-stick spray.

Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat eggs until frothy, then beat in sugar, lemon juice, zest and vanilla extract.

Fold dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined, then pour batter into greased and lined baking sheet.

Use a rubber spatula to spread batter evenly across the pan and into the corners, then place baking sheet in oven. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until top is golden brown and springs back when touched.

While cake bakes, spread a large kitchen towel on your workspace and dust generously with powdered sugar. (Towel should be larger then baking sheet.)

Remove cake from oven and turn it out onto sugar-coated kitchen towel. Remove parchment paper, then, starting from one of the short sides of the cake, flip the edge of the towel onto the cake and tightly roll cake into a spiral.

Set cake aside or refrigerate until cooled completely.

For the frosting: beat cream cheese in a large bowl for 1-2 minutes, or until fluffy. Add butter and beat until smooth and combined, then beat in 3 cups powdered sugar.

Mix in lemon extract and lemon zest, stirring in milk if you prefer frosting to be a little thinner.

Remove cake from fridge and unroll, then spread frosting on, making sure to get up to the edges of the cake.

Re-roll cake, without the towel, being careful to gently pull the cake away from the towel if it sticks slightly.

Return to the refrigerator for another 1-2 hours, or until chilled.

Dust with powdered sugar, slice, serve and enjoy!
