Jelly Roll
7 ounces Belgian Chocolate, Milk, chopped

6 large eggs, separated

2/3 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon table salt

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Line a lightly greased 15- by 10 1/2-inch jelly-roll pan with foil and grease the foil. Line foil with wax paper or parchment paper and grease.

In top of double boiler set over simmering water, melt belgian chocolate stirring until smooth, let cool.

In large mixing bowl, beat egg yolks with 1/3 cup sugar for about 5 minutes, or until thick, beat in the chocolate mixture and vanilla.

Using another large mixing bowl, beat egg whites and salt until they are frothy, add cream of tartar and beat whites until they hold soft peaks. Add remaining 1/3 cup sugar, a little at a time, beat whites until they hold stiff peaks.

Stir one fourth of whites into chocolate mixture, fold in remaining whites gently but thoroughly. Pour batter into prepared baking pan and spread evenly with spatula.

On middle rack, bake at 350°F. oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until puffed. Cool completely in pan on a rack. (Don't panic, the cake when taken out of oven will be puffed up and when set to cool, will sink, that's OK.)


Whipped Cream Filling
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin

1 cup well-chilled whipping cream

2 tablespoons instant espresso powder

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

In a small saucepan sprinkle gelatin over 2 tablespoons cold water and let it soften for 5 minutes. Heat mixture over low heat, stirring, until gelatin is dissolved, let it cool for 5 minutes.

In large bowl combine whipping cream, Italian espresso powder and cinnamon, beat until it holds soft peaks. Add 1/4 cup confectioners sugar and gelatin mixture, beat until it holds stiff peaks. Chill covered, for 10 minutes.

In small bowl stir together cocoa powder and 1 1/2 tablespoons confectioners sugar and sift about half of the mixture evenly over cake.

Cover with a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper, invert a baking sheet over paper, and invert cake onto baking sheet. Peel off tin foil and paper carefully and mound the filling lengthwise down the center, leaving a 1-inch border at each end.

With long side facing you, use wax paper as an aid and roll up the jelly roll fashion, keeping it wrapped in wax paper. (The cake will crack but it will still hold together.)

Chill jelly roll, wrapped in the wax paper, on baking sheet for at least 1 - 2 hours. Transfer to a platter, remove wax paper, trim ends on the diagonal.

Sift the remaining cocoa mixture over the roll.

Mocha Chocolate Frosting
1/3 cup well-chilled whipping cream

2 teaspoons instant espresso powder

1 teaspoon Kahlua

1 tablespoon confectioners sugar or icing sugar

2 ounces Belgian Chocolate, Dark, shaved

Fresh Strawberries

In a chilled small bowl beat whipping cream, instant italian espresso powder, cinnamon and confectioners sugar until it holds stiff peaks.

Spread over jelly roll decoratively and garnish with shaved belgian chocolate and sliced or whole strawberries..

Cooking Tip:
