Project: chocolate mint Swiss roll


Another attempt in making a cake roll since my last one here which was a mango lemon cake roll! And I got to say I’m getting to it! At least the rolling part. But I’m very happy with the outcome of my chocolate mint cake roll because not only it looked decent but it was also delicious!

Please take a peek and try it out maybe someday!

Alweer een poging in het maken van een cakerol sinds mijn laatste hier (mango citroen cake rol)! En ik moet zeggen dat ik aardig onder de knie te krijgen dat rolgedoe. En daarom ben ik zeer tevreden met het resultaat van mijn chocolade mint cakerol omdat het niet alleen fatsoenlijk uitziet, maar ook nog eens heerlijk eetbaar is!

Neem een kijkje en probeer dit recept misschien op een dag!

"The Recipe:
5 eggs seperated, 1 cup cake flour, 2 tbsp. cacao powder + extra for dusting, 1 tsp. baking powder, pinch of salt, ½ cup sugar (100 gr), ¼ cup milk (125 ml), 1 tbsp. Nutella
 mint filling:  250 ml cream, 1 Fisherman Friend, 3 tbsp. sugar

How can you not buy and love this Nutella??

"The Steps:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C and line up a rectangle cake tin with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl goes the dry ingredients: combine together the flour, all the powders and salt and set aside. 
  3. In another bowl: whisk egg yolks and sugar together until pal and creamy, stir in the milk and the 1 tbsp. Nutella until everything is combined.
  4. Then add in the dry ingredients in the egg mixture and fold until everything is combined. 
  5. In a new clean bowl: whip the egg white until high peaks, then add ⅓ of the egg white in the egg batter, fold until combined then add in the rest! 
  6. Pour the cake batter in the prepared and lined cake tin and bake for about 10-12 min. Meanwhile on a workspace: prepare a baking paper a bit larger than the cake tin and dust cacao powder on top. 
  7. Once cake is baked, cool down for 5 min. in the cake tin and then drop the cake on the prepared bakingpaper with cacao powder. The rolling: Remove baking paper from the cake and roll the cake whilst still warm from the short side in a roulade and let the cake cool down completely in its rolled form.
  8. Mint filling time : grind the Fisherman's Friend with a grater until powder. Whip the cream until medium stiff along with the FF powder and sugar. 
  9. Unroll the cake and spread the filling evenly on the cake. Roll back the cake and store in the fridge until serve.

  11. Looks so good! Usually, I see recipes with buttercream, but this filling seems so much better (lighter in consistency). I love swiss rolls :D Always get them at Mei Sum whenever I go to Rotterdam (which, unfortunately, is not that often ^^" )
