HOT CHOCOLATE CAKE ROLL

Soft cake roll crammed with light and fluffy frosting with folded mini marshmallows, drizzled with chocolate sauce and topped with more marshmallows. Perfect cake to possess with a mug of hot cocoa.

CHOCOLATE CAKE ROLL
This cocoa Cake Roll may be a cake that I made for an in depth friend to require home together with her to her family. She goes through some adversity and once I asked if there was anything I could do, she said “Chocolate Cake!”

She may be a big fan of chocolate like me, so I knew immediately that it might need to be a cake. I made a decision to form it cocoa themed because it are often so comforting. The soft, moist cake, smooth frosting, and marshmallows all make it a comforting holiday dessert

After rolling the cake, I had to form it look even, so I stop small slices off of every end. I don’t think I’ve seen my little guy inhale a cake faster than that before. It really was so good and tasted a bit like hot cocoa!

INSTRUCTIONS :


  1. Preheat oven to 375 and line 17x11x1 pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking oil spray (make sure to get the sides too).
  2. Beat eggs with electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes until thick and light yellow.
  3. Slowly beat in granulated sugar.
  4. Lower speed to low and add water and vanilla extract.
  5. Still on low, slowly add flour, ¼ cup cocoa, the baking powder and salt. Beat just until batter is smooth.
  6. Pour into pan and spread evenly. Bake for 7-8 minutes and do a toothpick test. Run a spatula around edges of the pan to loosen cake.
  7. Generously sprinkle a clean kitchen towel with cocoa and powdered sugar. Turn the cake pan upside down onto the towel. Carefully remove parchment paper. Trim off crusty edges if necessary.
  8. While the cake is still hot, gently roll cake with the towel from narrow end (don't make it too tight and don't press.
  9. Cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes.
  10. While the cake is cooling, make frosting: Beat cream cheese with sugar on medium-high for about 2 minutes, until light and smooth. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl and add marshmallow fluff. Beat until combined. On low speed, beat in Cool Whip just until combined. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl and add marshmallows. Fold them in with a spatula until all incorporated.
  11. Unroll cake carefully. Carefully, spread frosting all over the cake, leaving about an inch and a half one of the short ends.
  12. Carefully roll the cake back up (starting with the side that has frosting) and place cake on the serving dish seam down.
  13. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and top off with some mini marshmallows.
