Chocolate roulade with Griottines®

Simple, elegant and always delicious. Griottines® and cream encased in a chocolate sponge roll oozing with appeal.

Serves 6 to 8

You will need:

Egg white 90 g
Sugar 50 g
Egg yolk 90 g
Flour 40 g
Cocoa powder 5 g
Whipping cream 200 g
Caster sugar 60 g
Vanilla extract: few drops
Griottines® Original


Preheat the oven to 200°C (Gas Mark 6). Grease and line a Swiss roll tin measuring approx 30cm x 20cm with baking parchment.

Whisk egg white, gently fold in sugar, add egg yolk and mix. Fold in sieved flour and cocoa powder to combine.

Tip into the prepared tin and shake to level it. Place in the oven for approx 12 mins, until the sponge is slightly risen and just firm to the touch. The top should be dry.

Place a sheet of baking parchment on your work surface and carefully invert the cake onto the paper. Remove the paper from the base of the roulade and discard. Roll up in the fresh paper from the short end and cool completely until ready to fill and serve.
Drain the cherries in a sieve over a bowl. Whip the cream until just starting to thicken. Unroll the roulade, discard the paper and spread the cream evenly over the surface, leaving a 2cm gap all the way around the edge. Add the Griottines and re-roll the roulade (don't worry if it cracks a little).

Present on a plate topped with Griottines.
