Updated on January 6, 2014

Ready to slice

Chocolate Roll Recipe

  • Beat together 5 egg yolks and 1 cup sugar
  • Add 3 tablespoons ground chocolate and 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • Sift together: 1 cup flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder and add to yolk and sugar mixture; blend well
  • Fold in the 5 well beaten egg whites (of the 5 eggs)

Butter a baking sheet, line with waxed paper, then butter the paper.

Spread dough 1/2 inch thick over the sheet.

Bake 10 minutes in medium oven.

Mix a little powdered sugar and flour on a paper and turn the cake out over this. Roll, along with a cotton cloth as you would a jelly roll. Let cool on a wire rack.. Unroll and spread filling over the cake and re-roll. Cutting off dry edges might be necessary before re-rolling. Spread more filling over the top of the cake roll. This is more like a glaze on the top.

White chocolate cream filling and topping

  • Mix in saucepan: 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Slowly add 1 cup milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Beat 1 egg yolk and stir in this about half of the milk mixture, then combine with the other milk mixture.
  • Melt 3 ounces of white chocolate and add this to the heated mixture. Also add 1 tablespoon butter and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Mix thoroughly. Add about 2 cups powdered sugar to thicken.

The chocolate roll listed a chocolate sauce but that was too much chocolate for our tastes. Other fillings/sauces you might try are butterscotch or a white sauce with orange flavoring.

Other suggestions

  • Decorate the top with well placed maraschino cherries or other candied fruit
  • Use other flavored filling/glaze. As mentioned above, orange is very good with chocolate, as is butterscotch or vanilla.
  • Preparing this dessert as we did, it is not terribly rich ... a one inch slice is perfect.

I hope you enjoy this dessert as much as we all have.
