I was just waiting for this day. Yep, its Sweet Punch time again and this month I got to select the recipe. Now you know why I was waiting ;). As per the list made by the Sweet Punch team, it was either roulade or swiss roll. If you are wondering what's the difference between the two, check out this. Roulades can be sweet as well as savoury. I decided to go for the sweet version, after all we are baking for “sweet punch” right ;)? You can read more about roulade here.
I selected roulade because it sounded fancy and also I remembered bookmarking a chocolate roulade recipe in my Martha Stewart baking book. But after going through the recipe I was a bit disappointed because it used raw eggs for the filling. Now I dont fancy any kind of raw egg in my food and decided to find out another recipe. I started going through all my baking books and finally saw this recipe in one of my fav books, Australian Women's Weekly.
I wanted to make sure that the recipe works well, so I tried it before sending it to the baking group. I also got feedback from my friends about the same and I made some changes in the recipe based on their feedback.
Now about the recipe, it can be considered as a rich dessert, the base is made with chocolate & eggs without any flour and its filled with whipping cream & cherries. It's very moist and its texture is kind of gooey. If you like chocolate flavor, I'm sure you will enjoy this. I was very much tensed about the rolling part, because it tends to break. Luckily it came out well, though there were some minor cracks.
I enjoyed baking and eating it too. Hope you will also enjoy it :) Dont forget to check out the roulade round up on Sweet Punch Website.
