The Best Chocolate Swiss Roll Recipe

Notes on Ingredients

Selecting quality ingredients is crucial for the best results. Here’s a quick look at what you’ll need:

  • All-purpose flour: Provides structure to the cake.
  • Cocoa powder: Gives the cake its rich chocolate flavor.
  • Salt and baking soda: Ensures the cake rises properly.
  • Eggs and sugar: Create a light and airy texture.
  • Vanilla extract and melted butter: Add depth of flavor.
  • Heavy cream, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and chocolate-hazelnut spread: Combine to make a luscious filling.

How to Make Chocolate Swiss Roll

  1. Preheat and Prep: Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C). Spray a jelly roll or rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper.
  2. Make the Cake: Sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on high speed until tripled in volume, about 5 minutes. Mix in vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture, alternating with melted butter, until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, ensuring it’s less than 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Bake: Bake for 8-9 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool completely.
  4. Roll the Cake: Flip the cake onto a new sheet of parchment paper. Gently remove the old parchment paper. Roll the cake into a tube with the parchment paper and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. Prepare the Filling: Whip the cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until medium peaks form. Fold in the chocolate-hazelnut spread until well combined.
  6. Assemble: Unroll the cake, spread the filling evenly, and roll it back up. Dust with cocoa powder if desired.

How to Serve Chocolate Swiss Roll

Slice the Chocolate Swiss Roll with a bread knife to prevent squeezing. Serve each slice with a dollop of any leftover filling. This dessert pairs wonderfully with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk.

How to Store Chocolate Swiss Roll

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To keep the cake fresh and prevent it from drying out, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap before placing it in the container.
