Ingredients

For the roll:
4 Happy Eggs, separated
100g caster sugar
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tsp orange extract
50ml milk
50g flour
15g cocoa powder
 
For the chocolate filling:
180g softened butter
180g icing sugar
180g dark chocolate

Method

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
For the chocolate filling, gradually melt the chocolate using the microwave and stirring often. Let cool down. With a hand mixer, mix the softened butter on its own for 3-5 minutes. Add the icing sugar in two stages and whisk for another 3 minutes. Add the cooled chocolate and whisk well until combined.
 
For the roll, separate the eggs. Add half of the caster sugar to the yolks and whisk together.
Add orange extract, milk and oil and whisk again.
Add flour and cocoa powder and whisk again.
 
In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites until they form peaks. Add the remaining caster sugar and whisk until combined.
Gradually add the whisked egg whites to the egg yolk mixture.
 
Pour in a baking tin (20x30cm) lined with baking paper and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Once baked, flip the roll out onto a new baking paper and carefully peel off the baking paper from the top of the roll. Using your baking paper, roll the swiss roll up from the short end – the baking paper will be inside the roll. Let cool down.
 
Once cool, unroll the sponge and spread 3/4 of the chocolate filling (leaving some space around the edges). Carefully roll the sponge back up (as tight as you can for the nicest swirl).
Spread the rest of the filling on top and the sides of the swiss roll. Decorate with Easter chocolate eggs of your choice. Store in the fridge. Before serving let the roll warm up to a room temperature.
