This is a real sweet and decadent treat! Impress your friends and guests with this dessert. Pour a bit of liqueur into the Creamy Chocolate Icing. Omit the chocolate and make a plain sponge – let your imagination run wild.

Preparation time:  20 minutes

Cooking time:         15 minutes

Serves:                    6

3 large eggs

80 g caster sugar

80 g plain flour

30 g unsweetened cocoa powder

15 ml hot water (about 1 tablespoon)

Caster sugar for icing

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 200⁰C.
  2. Grease and line a Swiss roll tin with non-stick baking paper.
  3. Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a large bowl until thick and creamy (an electric whisk produces good result).
  4. Sieve the flour and cocoa together and fold into the mixture carefully with the water. Do this procedure very lightly and make sure you don’t knock out air from the mixture.
  5. Place into the prepared tin and tilt the tin to level the mixture, making sure it goes right into the corners.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes until springy to the touch.
  7. Dust a large piece of non-stick paper with caster sugar and turn the baked sponge out onto it. Remove the baking paper.
  8. Trim off the burnt or hard edges and make a dent along the width, 1cm in.
  9. From this end, roll it up with the paper in the middle. Cool on a wire rack.
  10. Unroll the sponge, spread over the Creamy Chocolate Icing and up roll again.
  11. Swirl the Chocolate Ganache over with a palette knife and keep refrigerated until ready to serve!
