Ingredients: 75 g self raising flour, 50 g cocoa powder, 1tsp baking powder, 5 medium eggs, 100 g caster sugar, 2tsp vanilla sugar.

Filling: 200 g cream cheese, 200 ml double cream, sugar to sweeten, handful of strawberries.

Cover with chocolate ganache: 100 g melted dark chocolate, 100 ml double cream, 1tsp irish cream.

Method: Preheat oven.

Beat the eggs and caster sugar until thick; fold in the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder with a wooden spoon, do not mix it too much:) Bake for maximum 10 minutes. I had to take it out after 8 minutes.

Cool the sponge for 5 minutes, turn it out onto a piece of baking parchment and dust with caster sugar.

For the filling, use a hand mixer to beat the cheese cream and the double cream until it turns fluffy, add the sugar at the end. Spread it and add the strawberry.

Very gently fold the sponge into a roll. Don’t worry if it breaks slightly, the chocolate ganache will cover all the imperfections.

For the ganache, melt the chocolate adding the double cream slowly with the irish cream; use again a hand mixer to obtain a smooth and thick chocolate cream. Spread the ganache with a spatula , when finished dust with icing sugar and cocoa powder.
