Chocolate & Frangelico Swiss Roll

I love mixing flavors that go so well together that one thinks they should never be separated. Dark chocolate and Frangelico is the case. The bitterness and density of the dark chocolate, its intensity and overpowering flavour marries perfectly with Frangelico, an  irresistible sweet hazelnut liqueur from Italy that also contains traces of cocoa, vanilla, coffee and cinammon. This cake will be the cherry on top of a romantic dinner or friends gathering and you'll be sure to get the "wow" factor with this wickedly delicious Swiss roll!

  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 200g butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 200g sugar 
  •  75g flour
  •  1 teaspoon of baking powder
  •  1 and 1/2 cup of Frangelico
  •  dark brown sugar

Take the chocolate and butter to medium heat until melted. Beat eggs and sugar until it forms a white foam. Add the
melted chocolate and butter to this foam and add a goblet of Frangelico. Mix well. Pour the flour into the batter slowly and blend well, but without beating. Take to a preheated oven at 180 ° for about 30 m. Take from the oven, turn the dough on a cloth sprinkled with dark brown sugar. Wrap the cake while still warm. Refrigerate and serve cold.
