I don't have one, but in Rose Levy Beranbaum's Cake Bible there might either be a recipe for one or a recipe that you could tweak into a chocolate version of a jelly roll cake. What a good idea - I hope you find what you're looking for. I can think of so many great fillings it would go with - almond, orange, peanut butter, peppermint. I could go on and on!

Thanks Marianna!

I have an aunt that wants a chocolate cake ice cream roll. I just want it to roll up and not crack. I have wanted Rose's book, I guess I'll have to get it now icon_smile.gif

Here's what I used last time I made one (it ended up tasting just like a swiss cake roll when I added the whipped cream and covered it in ganache.

Chocolate Roll
1 C cake flour or 3/4 C all-purpose flour
1/4 C cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 C granulated sugar
1/3 C water
1 tsp vanilla
powdered sugar

Heat oven to 375 F. Line Jelly Roll pan (15.5x10.5x1in) with waxed paper; grease. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In small mixer bowl, beat eggs about 5 minutes or until very thick and lemon colored. Pour eggs into large mixer bowl; gradually beat in sugar. On low speed, blend in water and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, beating just until batter is smooth. Pour into pan, spreading batter to corners.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Loosen cake from edges of pan; invert on towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Carefully remove wax paper; rim off stiff edges in necessary.
While hot, roll cake and towel from narrow end. cool on wire rack. unroll cake; remove towel. spread filling over cake. Roll up; top as desired.

the recipe is from betty crocker
