  • 1/2 cup 100g caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup 75g plain flour
  • 1/4 cup 30g cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp boiling water
  • Cocoa powder to dust
  • Chocolate cream
  • 300 ml thickened cream
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar mixture
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dark cocoa powder


  • Preheat oven to 200C. Grease and line the base and sides of a 25 x 30cm Swiss roll pan with baking paper.
  • Use an electric mixer to whisk the eggs and sugar and mixture is thick and pale and doubled in size.
  • Sift the combined flour and cocoa powder over the egg mixture, pour the boiling water down the side of the bowl. Use a metal spoon or a balloon whisk to gently fold until almost combined. Pour into the prepared pan, gently smooth the surface. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the surface is dry to the touch.
  • Meanwhile, sprinkle a large sheet of baking paper with extra caster sugar. Turn the hot sponge out onto the sugared paper. Remove the baking paper. Using the paper as a guide, roll the sponge from a short end into a log. Set aside to cool completely.
  • To make the chocolate cream, use an electric mixer to whisk the combined cream, sugar and cocoa powder until firm peaks form.
  • Unroll the sponge onto a clean work surface. Spread the chocolate cream over the sponge, leaving a 2cm boarder at the end. Roll sponge to enclose filling. Place on a serving plate. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
