Black_Forest_roulade Easy Food
Serves 10-12
5 eggs
100g caster sugar
60g gluten-free plain flour
40g gluten-free cocoa powder

For the filling:
250ml fresh cream
2 tbsp icing sugar
1 tsp gluten-free vanilla extract
1punnet of fresh cherries, pitted and chopped (reserve a few whole cherries for decorating the top)
Chocolate shavings
  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4.
  2. Line a Swiss roll tin with non-stick parchment paper.
  3. Beat the eggs and sugar together for a few minutes until the mixture resembles softly whipped cream.
  4. Sieve the flour and cocoa together and fold into the egg mixture. Pour onto the prepared tin and spread gently into the corners, being careful not to press the air from the mixture.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes, then remove from the oven and sprinkle with icing sugar.
  6. Place a fresh sheet of parchment paper and a cooling rack on top of the roulade. Carefully flip over and remove the baking tin. Peel off the parchment paper and roll up from the long side, using the new parchment to guide the sponge. Set aside, seam side down, and allow to cool completely.
  7. Make the filling by whipping the cream, icing sugar and vanilla together until the mixture forms soft peaks.
  8. Unroll the roulade and spread over some of the cream, reserving enough to decorate the top. Sprinkle with chopped cherries, reserving enough for decorating.
  9. Using the parchment, roll up the roulade once again and decorate with swirls of cream and the reserved cherries. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings to finish.
