For the Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (set to 325 if using a very dark pan). Grease a 15x10x1 inch pan with cooking spray and then cover with parchment paper and then grease the parchment payer.
  2. Lay a tea towel on a flat work surface and sprinkle well with powdered sugar and set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs on high for 3 minutes until pale in color. Continue beating as you slowly add in the sugar. Add the oil, buttermilk, vinegar, and vanilla. Beat for 1 more minute. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Pour batter into pan and tilt to even out the batter.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until it springs back when touched.
  6. When done, immediately invert the cake onto the towel. Remove the parchment paper and then roll the cake in the towel starting at the short end. Set on a wire rack and allow it to cool completely.

For the Filling:

  1. Beat cream cheese with powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Mix in cool whip until creamy. Refrigerate until cake has cooled completely and ready to fill.
  2. Unroll the cake and spread the jam all over the cake ½-inch from the edges. Apply the filling evenly over the jam. Roll the cake back up and place seam side down on a platter. (Some of the filling will gush out while rolling. Just discard whatever comes out.) Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. Dust with powdered sugar, garnish with fresh strawberries, slice, and serve.

Chocolate Coconut Cake Roll

Ingredients

Refrigerated

  • 3 Eggs

Condiments

  • 3/4 cup Nutella

Baking & Spices

  • 3/4 cup All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 3/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1 Powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp Powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp Vanilla

Nuts & Seeds

  • 2 cups Coconut, sweetened
  • 1 1/2 tsp Coconut extract

Drinks

  • 2 tsp Coffee

Dairy

  • 1 3/4 cups Heavy whipping cream

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Make the Cake: preheat oven to 350°F. Line a jelly roll (10x15”) pan with foil and spray with cooking spray (I like to use the spray with flour).
  2. Beat eggs at high speed for 3 minutes, until frothy and dark yellow. Beat in sugar, coffee or water, and vanilla extract.
  3. Whisk together cocoa, salt, baking powder, and flour. Stir into wet ingredients just until blended.
  4. Spread in prepared pan. Batter will be in a very thin layer and you will need to use a wooden spoon or spatula to spread it to all the corners of the pan. Make sure it's even. Tap the pan on the counter a few times to release air bubbles. Bake for 10-12 minutes. You’ll know it’s done because if you lightly poke the top with your fingertip it will slightly bounce back.
  5. While the cake is baking, set a clean kitchen towel out on a large work surface. Sprinkle liberally with powdered sugar (about 1/4 cup). As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, turn it over on the kitchen towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Remove foil carefully.
  6. Working at the short end, fold the edge of the towel over the cake. Roll tightly, rolling up the cake into the towel. Let cool completely while rolled, at least one hour (or you can wrap it and chill it overnight).
  7. Toast the coconut by adding it to a medium skillet and cooking over low heat, stirring constantly, until it turns golden. Immediately remove to a plate to cool.
  8. Make the Filling: beat 1 cup of heavy whipping cream in an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. (You can also use a hand mixer, but it will take longer.) Slowly add in powdered sugar during beating, one tablespoon at at time. Add both extracts. Beat until whipped cream forms. Stir in 1 cup of toasted coconut.
  9. Assemble Cake: once the cake has cooled, unroll it carefully. If you wish, spread nutella evenly over the cake. Spread the whipped cream on the cake, leaving 1” without filling at either end. Re-roll cake, scooping out any filling that spills out as you roll. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour before frosting.
  10. Make the topping: place chocolate chips in a bowl. Heat 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream in a small saucepan over low heat for a few minutes or in the microwave for 60-90 seconds until it just simmers. Pour over the chocolate chips and let sit for one minute, then whisk until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Chill for about 10 minutes.
  11. Place cake roll on a wire rack set over a cookie sheet. Pour the ganache over the cake evenly. Top with remaining toasted coconut. Chill until set.
  12. Note: The cake should stay chilled until right before serving or the whipped cream filling will get warm and it will be hard to slice.
