Elegant Chocolate Roll Cake is so tasty. Light & Fluffy.
This cake is one that I am requested to bring each Holiday. My family loves it.
Don’t think its too difficult to make because it really isn’t and it bakes up in 12 minutes.
Here is a brief look at that preparation and the full recipe that you can print is below.
Serving Tray – approx. 10″ x 5″ looks best
Line sheet cake pan with foil and grease foil.
Mix cake and spread in foil-lined pan.
Bake at recommended temperature.
Rolling the cake
Immediately after removing from oven, place cake and pan upside down onto prepared towel sprinkled with confectioners sugar. You should buy a towel that you use for making this cake. Keep it put aside for baking. Buy a towel that is breathable and thin.
Slowly peel back foil and remove from cake
Roll cake from narrow end into a roll. Let cool on the rack until completely cool.
Once cool unroll. You may have a little cracking but that is normal, it won’t go through to the top side unless you over-baked the cake.
Re-roll cake and sprinkle with confectioners sugar to finish.
Put on a serving tray.
