  • ¼ cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 135 g sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • ¼ cup castor sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk


  • In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer add 4 large eggs, 135g sugar, and oil. Whisk them at the speed of 2 for 4-5 minutes till frothy.
  • Add cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and Mix everything for 2-3 minutes on speed of 2 till well blended.
  • Now line a baking tray with parchment paper or Silpat.
  • Pour the cake batter into the thin layer and bake at 180C for 10-12 minutes.
  • On a flat surface place another parchment paper and sprinkle some cocoa powder over it.
  • Gently flip the chocolate sponge over the parchment paper while it is still warm. Now roll it very gently into a log-shaped roll and keep it aside.
  • In the mixing bowl of the stand mixer, add the heavy cream and sugar whip it at a speed of 1 till it forms peaks.
  • Now gently unfold the chocolate roll. Spread the whipped cream on the cake, this time lift the edge of the parchment paper and roll the cake with filling to form a log/roll.
  • Refrigerate it for an hour and then cut it into slices as per your preferred thickness. You can make decorate it with a fancy pattern with ganache or chocolate sauce but frankly speaking, I love it as it is with few chopped fruits and a cup of tea or coffee.
