This decadent chocolate roll is as light as a cloud and as rich as a billionaire’s chocolate fondue. A sponge cake chocolatey enough to make cocoa beans jealous, wrapped around a creamy filling that’s smooth enough to charm an entire party!

  • Cooking Method: Baking
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: Dessert


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat your whimsical oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Line a 10×15-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper and give it a light non-stick spray cuddle.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Voiceover optional.
  4. In another bowl, beat the eggs and granulated sugar until they’re lighter than your last vacation—about 5 minutes.
  5. Add vanilla extract, and then gently fold in the dry ingredients. Gentler than handling a sleeping cat.
  6. Pour the batter onto the prepared pan, spreading it evenly. Seriously, no mountains allowed.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes. No peeking! The cake should spring back when touched.
  8. While the cake is baking, place a clean kitchen towel on the counter and sprinkle it generously with powdered sugar. This isn’t the time to skimp.
  9. Once baked, immediately turn the cake out onto the prepared towel and carefully peel off the parchment paper. It’s unveiling time!
  10. Roll the cake up with the towel from the short end. It’s a spa day for cake.
  11. Cool completely on a wire rack. Patience, grasshopper.
  12. For the filling, whip the heavy cream and powdered sugar together until stiff peaks form. They should be peakier than your high school prom outfit.
  13. Unroll the cooled cake gently, spread the whipped cream filling evenly over it, and re-roll without the towel. The grand reveal!
  14. For the chocolate glaze, melt the chocolate chips and butter together in a microwave, stirring every 20 seconds until smooth. Chocolate heaven.
  15. Drizzle or spread the glaze over the rolled cake. Decorate with flourish and a dash of pizzazz.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap heavy cream with mascarpone for a richer filling. Add a tablespoon of instant coffee to the batter for a mocha twist.
  • Garnishing Options: Top with fresh berries, a dollop of whipped cream, or a sprinkle of edible gold. Be fancy!
  • Cooking Tips: Ensure the cake is cool before filling to prevent melty disasters. Always roll with confidence and a smile.
