So far so good... dude I'm awesome.
Well, after hanging my head for a bit, I realized that this isn't soooo bad. I mean the Jets won this week, and Tom Brady isn't play us next week. Something bad has to happen to me to balance all this out right? Well I'm showing that equilibrium karma thing that he's not going to get to me.
So I give you... Apple Sponge Cake Trifle... because anything looks good with whipped cream and a wine glass :)

Recipe by Adam
-1 cup cake flour
-3/4 cup sugar
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp salt
-2 eggs, seperated
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1/4 cup milk
-2 Tbsp butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350*. For a cake roll, grease a cookie sheet with cooking spray, line with parchment paper, and sprayed again.
In a large bowl, mix sugar and egg yolks together until thick and yellow. Add the milk, vanilla, and butter until well incorporated. Add in the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, and salt, and mix by hand until well combined.
In a small, clean bowl, beat the two egg whites with a handmixer until semi stiff peaks form. We just want to volumize the egg whites.
Fold the egg whites into the other ingredients gently, and pour into a prepared cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (or whatever type of cooking pan you want to use).
Bake at 350* until desired doneness... for the roll it should be 10-14 minutes. It should look very slightly browned, and spring back to the touch.
For further instructions on how to make a jelly roll, I would look at other websites to see the whole "invert on a kitchen towl and roll up" technique.
See, it's ALMOST a roll... oh well
So that was my awesome weekend. Football... good. Cake roll? Eh, not so much. Somebody else try this out and let me know what you think. If it doesn't work out for you, that's nothing a trifle can't fix. Sponge cake, sweetened apple filling, and whipped cream... ya know life ain't too bad :)
