white & green - pistacchio chocolate-roll

I love jelly rolls! They are spongie and delicious. There are a thousand types of decorating and fill. I love making a sponge dough because it's pretty easy to make and it's really fluffy. The cake dough melts on your tongue.

Todays recipe has a dark chocolate ganache with chopped pistachios and a colored frosting.

What you'll nedd for


4 eggs
100gr sugar
1/2 tsp salt
75 g flour
75 g corn starch
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract

100gr dark chocolate
250 gr heavy whipped cream


1 beat your egg whites until foamy. (+ preheat your oven to 170°C)

2 mix the dry ingredients (flour, salt, corn starch & baking powder)

3 now mix in another bowl your egg yolks with the sugar until creamy and fluffy (3-4 min)

4 Mix your dry ingredients into the sugar-egg yolk batter until incorporated.

5 Now fold your egg whites careful under the batter.( You'll see it gets now fluffy)

6 line a parchment paper onto a baking sheet and share out the dough evenly.

7 now bake the dough for 17 min and place a wet dishtowel(for rolling the dough)

8 let your cake cool for 3 mins.

9 use the wet towel for rolling up the cake and let cool for 1-2h

10 meanwhile you can prepare the frosting & filling .

hope you'd enjoyed.
