Ingredients

1 tablespoon sugar, superfine
200 grams dark chocolate
coarsely chopped
*
¼ cup water
hot
1 tablespoon instant coffee
powder
4 large eggs
separated
½ cup sugar, superfine
about 110 grams
1 teaspoon water
hot
300 millilitres cream
thickened
2 tablespoons liqueur
coffee-flavoured
1 tablespoon icing
sugar mixture or vanilla bean dusting sugar
*

Directions

Preheat the oven to moderate (180°/160°C fan-forced).

Grease a 25cm x 30cm Swiss-roll pan; line the base with baking paper.

Place a piece of baking paper cut the same size as the Swiss-roll pan on a board or bench; sprinkle evenly with caster sugar.

Combine chocolate, water and half the coffee powder in a large heatproof bowl.

Stir over a large saucepan of simmering water until the mixture is smooth; remove from the heat.

Beat the egg yolks and extra caster sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until thick and creamy; fold egg mixture into warm chocolate mixture.

Meanwhile, beat the egg whites in a small bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold the egg whites, in two batches, into the chocolate mixture.

Spread into prepared pan; bake in a moderate oven for about 10 minutes.

Turn the cake on to the sugared paper, peeling away the baking paper; use a serrated knife to cut away the crisp edges from all sides.

Cover the cake with a tea towel; cool.

Dissolve the remaining coffee powder in the extra water in a small bowl.

Add the cream, liqueur and icing sugar; beat with electric mixer until firm peaks form.

Spread cake evenly with the cream mixture.

Roll cake, from long side, by lifting paper and using it to guide the roll into shape.

Cover roll; refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

It only lasted three days in our fridge, and we tried to not eat too much on one day, we really had to fight with ourselves :D
