100g Caster Sugar. (Plus a little more for turning out the roulade)
25g S.R. Flour.
50g Almond Meal.
For the Cream filling....
100g Plain Chocolate (melted)
100g Icing Sugar. (Sifted)
2 tbsp Booze (I used VOK's Martini Chocolate)
Cocoa or Icing sugar for dusting.
Preheat the oven to 180c. Line and butter a 30cm Swiss roll tin, and dust with caster sugar, shaking off any excess.
Beat the eggs until three times the volume, they should be pale and thick enough to leave a trail when the whisk is taken out. This could take up to ten minutes so I hope you have a fabulous mixer like me! (The new KA)
Sift all the dry ingredients together and gently fold them in to the egg mixture, using a metal spoon and being very careful not to knock the air out of the eggs.
Spoon carefully in to the prepared tin and spread to the corners.
Bake for 12 to 18 minutes until the cake is firm to touch in the middle. Turn out on to a piece of baking paper scattered with caster sugar.
Peel off the backing paper and then start to *roll* lengthwise using the paper it is now on. When rolled, dampen a tea towel and then roll again. This will help to keep it moist while it is cooling.
Meanwhile, make you cream filling. Beat the mascarpone, melted chocolate, icing sugar and the booze together. Then fold in the mashed raspberries. Holding back a few for decoration. Put this in the fridge to set. When the *roll* and the cream filling are ready, unroll and spread the filling to all edges. Re roll, cutting off any tatty edges. Then dust and decorate. Put back in the fridge for a wee while. (I couldn't wait that long!) To firm up.
Now stop yourself from having more than one slice. ENJOY.
* Leave out the fruit and just have all chocolate.
* Note I didn't dust mine, I used shop bought chocolate swirls.
