I was very bad today...
I made a Grated Chocolate Roll
I was really doing a test run because I thought I'd make it for my neighbours in the back house for tomorrow which is Easter Sunday here.
Grated Chocolate Roll
4 eggs separated
1/2 cup castor sugar
2 tablespoons hot water
60g dark chocolate, grated
1/2 cup Self raising flour
2 tablespoons castor sugar, extra
3/4 cup thickened cream
2 teaspoons icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Need a swiss roll pan. 25cm x 30cm
Heat oven to moderate.
Beat egg yolks and sugar in small bowl for about 5 mins.
Fold in hot water and grated chocolate. (personally I found 2 tablespoons hot water a little to much but it's hot here. I would have liked to keep the grated chocolate more whole)
Fold in sifted flour.
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
Fold into other mixture.
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 12 minutes in a moderate oven.
Turn immediately onto paper sprinkled with extra sugar. I used a regular baking paper.
Trim edges (I didn't bother)
Roll up IN THE PAPER. Meaning don't do what I did and do it like sushi/nori roll as the cake will stick to itself as it's rolled warm. Allow the sugared paper to be rolled inside
Stand it rolled for 2 minutes.
Allow to cool.
Spread with the vanilla creme.
Top with extra cream if you want. I made some shards of chocolate to sprinkle on top of it and added some sliced strawberries. YUM
