3 lg Eggs
1 c Sugar
2 c Applesauce
1 c All-purpose flour
1 ts Baking powder
1 ts Ground cinnamon
1/4 ts Ground nutmeg
1/4 ts Salt

that is not too thin.

paper. 2. Place eggs in a mixing bowl; beat at high speed for 5 minutes.
Gradually beat in sugar and 1/2 cup applesauce. 3. Sift flour, baking
powder, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together. Blend flour
mixture into egg mixture, using low speed. Spread batter in pan. 4. Bake in
preheated 375-degree oven for 15 minutes or until cake is lightly browned
and springs back when pressed gently. Sprinkle kitchen towel with powdered
sugar; immediately invert cake onto towel. 5. Remove waxed paper; roll cake
and towel together from narrow end. Let cake completely cool. 6. Unroll
cake, trimming edges if desired. Remove from towel and spread with softened
ice cream; re-roll. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap or foil and freeze. 7.
Blend remaining 1-1/2 cups applesauce and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Chill.
When ready to serve, cut roll into slices and top each slice with chilled
applesauce. Serve with whipped cream if desired.
