There are a few things I remember that I use to do when I was younger. I use to eat violets, my pet worm named Wilbur, waving at trees, and buying junk food from the corner convenience store. When I was younger, if you had a dollar you were rich! In fact, you could get a whole meal for a dollar back in the day. That meal would consist of a pack of Ramen Noodles, a little plastic thing of juice, a .25 bag of Doritos, and a Little Debbie cake all for a buck! One of my most favorite unhealthy snacks were the Oatmeal Cream Pies and those Little Swiss Cake Rolls.
I loved those Swiss Cake Rolls!
I often wondered what it would be like if they were jumbo size. Well, I don’t have to wonder anymore because I made a jumbo version of it by creating this Chocolate Swiss Cake recipe. I am so happy to report that this Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake tastes so good! I was intimidated about rolling the cake but it really wasn’t that difficult. It requires a bit of patience but you can totally do it. You can even add fruit to the filling if you want! This chocolate cake leaves room for so much creativity. Have fun with this Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake recipe!
Oh, how I remember the first time I made this Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake recipe! Sure it has been about six years since I posted this chocolate cake recipe (man I’ve been blogging for a long time), but I remember this chocolate cake like it was yesterday. If you are looking at this cake as if it is too “fancy” to make because it happens to be rolled, please do not allow that to scare you. If you decide to make this Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake recipe, let me tell me what you can expect when making this cake:
This is not an option.
You will have a hard time turning the cake to a towel in one piece. Once you have baked the cake, you are going to let it cool a bit before turning it onto a clean kitchen towel. Next, you will remove the parchment paper and with the help of the towel and while the cake is still somewhat warm, you will roll the cake and allow it to cool completely in that roll position. This will help the cake to be easily rolled once you place the filling on the inside of the cake. Finally, you will glaze the cake in chocolate ganache. That’s it!
I know that baking is quite intimidating for some of you. I know that most of us prefer to only bake from a box. However, I can tell you this, making this Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake recipe will make you feel that you can accomplish anything once it is made. I will tell you that both times I made this cake, as I was rolling the cake it did crack a bit. If that happens to you, need to be afraid mis amigos! Keep going. The chocolate ganache glaze will cover those cracks and act as a glue as well. No one will ever know. You can even cover the ganache with chocolate shavings to make it pretty as I have in the photos. I do hope you enjoy this Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake recipe!
It tastes amazing!
