  • 4 eggs
  • 1 glass of sugar
  • 1 glass of flour
  • 2 tbsp of cocoa powder


  • 300 g (0,66 lb) curds
  • 1/2 glass of powdered sugar

Decoration of the dish

  • 50 g (0,11 lb) baking chocolate
  • 2 tbsp cream / milk
  • sunflower oil


Separate whites of the egg and yolks. Whip the whites by the help of a mixer. Then add sugar and froth the whites. Next put the yolks, stir everything and add flour with cocoa powder. Beat the ingredients by the help of a mixer again.

Place the prepared dough on a baking tray covered with parchment paper beforehand. Bake the cake in the preheated oven at 220°C (428°F) for 5-10 minutes.


Combine curds and powdered sugar. Beat the ingredients properly.

Don’t cool the cake and grease it with the prepared hard sauce (do not grease one edge of the crust – approximately 7 cm of it). Leave some sauce in order to grease the top of the roll. Then fold the cake in the form of a roll (beginning with the edge soaked with the hard sauce and ending with the edge without the hard sauce). Place the roll in a fridge for an hour. Then put it on a plate, grease the cake with the remaining hard sauce and leave the dessert at room temperature for half an hour. Cut the chocolate role into portions and serve.

Enjoy your meal!
