  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder semi-sweetened
  • 1/2 tbsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted dark chocolate
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 200 gm chocolate
  • 100 ml heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated Sugar
  • 3 cashew
  • 2 almond optional
  • 1 cardamom optional
  • 1/2 cup warm water


  • Cool the sponge rolls that we prepared for a while, and transfer them into a bowl.
  • Crumble the cake to make your work easier.
  • Blend it with milk (1/4 cup), and melted dark chocolate (1/4 cup). You can use warm black-coffee instead of dark chocolate if you prefer.
  • Use your hand to mix these, so that you can get a dough-like consistency. You can then add a little more milk if needed.
  • Take a rectangular-shaped buttered sheet, and spread the cake-dough on that equally.
  • Fill it with the fresh cream we made.
  • Roll it gently to make it as a roll cake (as you know), and pour the chocolate glaze on it. Make sure that the full part is covered.
  • Freeze the roll until the coating gets firm.
  • Once the glaze coating is set, take that out, and sprinkle the sweetener we made.
  • Decorate the cake with cherries or strawberries to give it an awesome look, and enjoy a delicious dessert.
