    Chocolate Roll

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1/2 tsp. instant coffee
    3 Tbs. warm water
    1/2 lb. semisweet chocolate, melted
    5 large eggs, separated
    1 cup sugar
    2 tsp. vanilla extract
    3 ounces bittersweet chocolate
    1/2 cup margarine
    1/2 cup superfine sugar
    2 eggs
    2 Tbs. cocoa


    Preheat oven to 375F. Oil a jelly roll pan with cooking oil or nonstick spray. Cut waxed paper to line pan with a 1 inch overlap on each side. Oil or spray the paper. Dissolve coffee in warm water and stir into melted chocolate. Place 5 egg yolks in a bowl, add sugar and beat until sugar is dissolved. Add half the vanilla. Blend in cooled chocolate mixture. Beat 5 egg whites until stiff but not dry and fold into chocolate. Spread batter onto oiled jelly roll pan and bake 5 minutes. Reduce oven to 350F and bake 10 minutes more or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. While cake is baking, melt bittersweet chocolate in a double boiler or over very low heat. Set aside to cool. Place margarine in a bowl and beat until creamy. Add superfine sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add cooled chocolate and remaining vanilla and mix well. Add remaining eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition until mixture is smooth. Refrigerate until slightly firm. Wet a dish towel, wring it dry, and cover the chocolate roll 10-20 minutes. Flip cake onto two sides of overlapping sheets of waxed paper dusted with cocoa. Fill with chocolate filling and roll lengthwise. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to serve.
