3 eggs--separated
3/4 c.powdered sugar
2 tbs. flour
2 rounded tbs. cocoa powder
1/8 tbs. of salt
1 c. whipping cream
1/4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 c. granulated sugar
1 tbs. of cocoa
3 tbs. of flour
2 c. of milk
2 tbs. of butter
1/2 tsp. of vanilla
1/2 c. of chopped nuts
1 cookie sheet pan

Separate the eggs, beat the whites until stiff and set them aside. Beat the egg yolks until light yellow. Blend the yolks into the egg whites by folding the yolk into the whites. In a separate bowl, sift together the powdered sugar, flour, cocoa, and salt. Fold these ingredients into the beaten egg mixture. Add vanilla and mix well. Pour the batter into a greased cake pan and be sure to line the bottom of the pan with was paper. Bake in a preheated oven of 400 for 5 to 7 minutes. Put cake onto a powdered sugar covered towel and roll the cake up, starting the rolling on the long side of the cake. Let cool before add the filling.
PREPARE FILLING: Whip the cream, add sugar and vanilla. Unroll the cake and spread the sauce: add all dry ingredients into a sauce pan and slowly add milk. Over low heat, stir mixture until thickened. Add sauce to the slice of cake and serve with nuts on top.
