Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper.

  • For roulade, in a small bowl, combine granulated sugar and sugar substitute; set aside. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add sugar mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, to egg whites, beating well after each addition. Gently stir in ground hazelnuts, vanilla and vinegar.

  • Pour batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a spatula. Tap pan lightly on countertop to remove any air bubbles. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until top is a pale golden color, firm to the touch and set. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine half of the whipped dessert topping and the chocolate hazelnut spread; beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until blended. Fold in the remaining whipped dessert topping.

  • Sprinkle the powdered sugar on a large sheet of parchment paper. Using a small knife or thin metal spatula, loosen edges of the roulade from the baking pan. Invert cooled roulade onto the powdered sugar-coated parchment paper. Carefully remove parchment paper from cooled roulade. Spread roulade with the whipped dessert topping mixture. Let stand for 5 minutes to allow the roulade to soften. Starting from a short side, carefully roll up into a spiral. (It is normal for the roulade to crack slightly as you roll it.) If desired, trim ends of the roulade. Cover and chill roulade in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours before serving. If desired, garnish with chopped hazelnuts and maraschino cherries.


Tips: To toast hazelnuts (filberts), preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread nuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake about 10 minutes or until toasted, stirring once. Place the warm nuts on a clean kitchen towel. Rub the nuts with the towel to remove the loose skins.
