Chocolate Baileys Roulade

Chocolate Baileys roulade

This is so easy to make and tastes delicious – roulades / swiss rolls are best eaten on the day they are made but will keep for another day in the fridge.

Makes 1 medium roulade| Baking time 8-10 minutes at 200 C

Utensils required: Electric whisk | Measuring cups & spoons & scale| 23x33cm baking tin

45 grams flour
30 grams cocoa
pinch salt
3 large eggs – separated
120 grams castor sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbps Baileys – used to sprinkle over sponge once baked

1 cup (250 mls) double cream
1 tbsp icing sugar
2 tbsp Baileys

  3. Sift flour, cocoa and salt – set aside
  4. Whisk egg yolks and 80 grams sugar until light in colour and thick in texture, then beat in vanilla
  5. In a clean bowl with clean beaters, whisk egg whites until stiff, then whisk in the remaining (40 grams) sugar
  6. Fold in a third of the flour followed by a third of the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture, then repeat.
  7. Spoon evenly into prepared tin and bake for 8-10 minutes or until sponge moves slightly away from the side – be careful not to over-bake
