Chocolate Swiss Roll
Chocolate Swiss Roll:
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 to 2 tbsp cocoa powder
Beat the eggs, sugar and baking powder until fluffy
Next fold in the flour and cocoa powder while sieving it.
Cover a baking sheet with a parchment paper and then grease the parchment paper.
Next pour the batter in the baking sheet and spread it evenly.
Bake the cake in an oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 mins.
At 8 minutes point, check to see if cake is done.
When the cake is ready, turn the oven off and remove the cake from the oven.
On a surface, spread another sheet of parchment, and remove the cake from the baking pan and turn the cake upside down, meaning the cake will be between the two parchments..Then remove the top parchment paper, which will be the one you baked the cake with.
Now fold the cake with the parchment paper to make a log and let it cool.
Ingredients for icing:
1 tbsp margarine
1 tbsp shortening
1 and 1/2 cups icing sugar
2 to 3 tbsp milk
In a mixer beat the margarine and shortening until smooth and well mixed.
Next sieve the icing sugar and add it in the mixer.
Then add the milk a tbsp at a time until you get the desired thickness.
The cream filling is now ready..
Now unfold the cake, remove the parchment paper and spread the filling, then fold the cake again and cut into desired thickness..For this picture , I doubled the recipe. Enjoy!!!
