Chocolate Roulade – Weekly Bake Off

I have to admit, when I looked at the recipe for this week’s Weekly Bake Off, I thought how can you make a cake without flour? That will never work, but good old Mary Berry knows her stuff, surely?

So with only these ingredients, who knew you could make a chocolate roulade – oh with the addition of double cream (I had to nip out for this whilst the cake was cooling as OH got single cream *rolls eyes*)

You will notice the dark chocolate was courtesy of an easter egg I had stashed away. I think it’s 70% cocoa solids was a tad rich for me, and the recipe only asks for 39% but the rest of the family loved it. Particularly the younger two, which surprised me. Will definitely be making this again.

Pre-baking:

I had the dog unhelpfully bashing an oversized tennis ball into my ankles the whole time I was in the kitchen.

Just out of the oven. Don’t be worried if yours has lumps and bumps like mine, it doesn’t matter. The hard bit is leaving it to cool.

Mary says ‘don’t worry about cracking’, it’s part of the cake’s charm, so here is my utterly charming chocolate roulade. A perfect Sunday tea pudding.

Domestic Goddesque - Cake without flour: that would have been easy-peasy for me as I have an awesome recipe. Mind you, that Mary Berry does rather kick arse. And your roulade would have seen everyone off in the Great British Bake Off.

Kayley - Wow this is perfect! You’ve put Mary Berry to shame and definitely have bettered some of the contestants! (Can you tell I was a fan of the Great Bitish Bake Off? Haha) x

FrecklesFamily - Ah, thanks Kayley. I don't think I saw the roulade episode, but I can see how it would have tested the patience of the contestants. It didn't last long in our house, so that's always a good indicator. ;0)Sent from my iPhone
