For the roulade

  • 175 g Dark chocolate melted
  • 175 g Caster sugar
  • 6 Eggs large, separated
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder sieved
  • Icing sugar to dust

For the Baileys cream

  • 275 ml Double cream
  • 2-3 tbsp Baileys
  • 1 tbsp Icing sugar


  • Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4, and line a swiss roll tin or large baking tray with a lip with baking paper.
  • Melt the dark chocolate in a glass bowl over water, or in the microwave. If melting in the microwave make sure to use a microwave safe bowl, start with a 30 second blast, stir the chocolate, then continue with 10 second blasts stirring in between until melted
  • Whisk up the yolks of the eggs and the caster sugar until thick and creamy
  • Use an electric food mixer or electric hand whisk to whisk up the whites from the eggs until stiff peaks form
  • Whisk the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture
  • Fold in half of the egg whites, then add the rest and fold in gently
  • Finally fold in the sieved cocoa powder
  • Pour the mixture into the baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes then leave to cool in the tin
  • Whip up the double cream with the ciing sugar and the Baileys
  • Tip the sponge out onto a piece of baking paper dusted with icing sugar and spread the cream over it, leave about a 2 cm space at one end of the sponge
  • Gently roll the sponge up starting with the cream filled end, don't worry if it cracks as it is supposed to. Trim the ends with a sereated knife for a neater finish. Dust it with more icing sugar if you like
  • Serve immediately, store leftovers in the fridge and eat within 2 days
