Chocolate And Caramac Roulade Recipe

I first made this delicious roulade years ago when I was in school. The Caramac adds a twist to the chocolate log recipe. If you do not wish to use Caramac you can use dark or milk chocolate or fill it with cream and cover it with chocolate buttercream instead.


Ingredients

Roulade
4 eggs
6oz caster sugar
2 oz cocoa sieved 

Filling
4 30g bars of Caramac or plain, milk or white chocolate
10 fl oz of whipping cream or alternative I used Elmlea double light

Topping
grated Caramac

Method

Set oven to 190C, Gas 5.
Grease and line a 8 by 12inch swiss roll tin. 
Separate the egg yolks and whites.
Whisk egg yolks with castor sugar until thick and mousse like. 
Fold in the sieved cocoa.
Whisk egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff then fold into the other mixture.
Spoon into the swiss roll tin, level out and bake for 20-25minutes on a middle shelf until well risen and spongy to touch.
Get a damp tea towel and turn out the roulade onto this. 
Cover with another damp tea towel and cool.
Whip the cream in a bowl until stiff.
Break up the Caramac into a bowl, and melt over a pan of hot water or in the microwave for between 1 to 2 minutes.
Stir in whipped cream.
Cool slightly then spread over half the cream mixture over the roulade
Roll up.
Cover with the remaining cream mixture.
Grate some Caramac over the top and then sieve some icing sugar over the roulade to look like snow.

Eat and enjoy!

  2. They sell caramacs in our local market. I love them and seriously doubt they'd last long enough for me to put in the roulade! x

    1. If you can't find it you can make it with other chocolate. I think Milky Bars would be a good alternative.
