It's a Roo-Lawd

You see the word all the time...

Being Southern we all have our accents...Roulade is a fun word though

Even more fun when you eat one.

Roulade is French for 

a dish cooked or served in the form of a roll, typically made from a flat piece of meat, fish, or sponge cake, spread with a soft filling and rolled up into a spiral.
Roulade’ means ‘roll’, and refers to anything which is rolled around a filling – like a swiss roll, or even slices of ham rolled around a filling. A roulade may be savoury or sweet. In French, ‘roulades’ (the plural) is pronounced like the singular. - See more at: http://www.howdoyousaythatword.com/word/roulade/#sthash.TrK1V1CN.dpuf


I will roll anything if it's a sweet treat!

Last night for dessert I made  Pecan Roulade

My cake didn't bake as flat as the picture Paula Deen showed and my filling made so much (doubled recipe for 2 rolls mind you) I could have filled 5 rolls with it.

Was it good?  Yes
Mild in flavor

We sprinkled powdered sugar and cinnamon over the top of ours!

It wasn't TOO SWEET and wasn't TOO BLAND

I thought it would make a great breakfast with coffee...SO that is exactly what I did this morning



I saved a piece....It was so delicious!  I savored each bite!

I would make this again for a brunch with ladies...or coffee with a friend

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Spray a 15x10-inch jelly-roll pan with nonstick baking spray with flour. Line pan with parchment paper, and spray again.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and 1/3 cup granulated sugar at medium-high speed with a mixer until thick and pale. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Sift flour mixture over egg yolk mixture, stirring to combine. Stir in pecans and melted butter.
  3. In another large bowl, beat egg whites at high speed with a mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1/3 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold egg white mixture into egg yolk mixture until combined. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched in center. Meanwhile, sift confectioners’ sugar into a 15x10-inch rectangle on a clean dish towel. Immediately run a knife around the edges of pan to loosen cake from sides of pan, and turn out onto prepared towel. Peel off parchment paper. Starting at short side, roll up cake and towel together. Place seam side down on a wire rack, and let cool completely.
  5. Unroll cake, and spread with Caramel Filling. Reroll cake without towel, and place seam side down on serving platter. Sift confectioners’ sugar over cake, and garnish with pecans, if desired.

Caramel Filling

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  2. 1/3 cup sugar
  3. 1 (12-ounce) jar hot caramel ice cream topping*
  4. 1 (1/4-ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
  5. 3 tablespoons cold water
  6. 1/4 cup boiling water

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, beat cream at medium speed with a mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Add caramel, beating just until combined.
  2. In a small bowl, combine gelatin and 3 tablespoons cold water; let stand for 2 minutes or until softened. Add 1/4 cup boiling water, stirring until dissolved. Add gelatin mixture to cream mixture, beating just until combined. (Mixture will look like it is melting, but it will set up again.) Cover and chill for 4 hours before using, or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
