icing sugar for dusting

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 11 x 13 inch swiss roll tin with baking paper.
2. Blend the coffee to a smooth paste with 1 tablespoon of warm water, Whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Remove from the heat and stir in the cooled, melted chocolate and coffee mixture.
3. Whisk the egg whites until stiff then gradually fold into the chocolate mixture.
4. Spread the mixture into the tin and bake for about 15 mins until firm to touch. Cool in the tin on a wire rack

Hi Steph

It's really easy to make. I've made roulades before and they tend to crack quite easily and look mis-shapen but to date whenever I've made this one it has held together well.
