How to Make Black Forest Swiss Roll

Preparing the Baking Pan

  • Grease a 12 x 18-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Line the pan with parchment paper, tucking in the corners and leaving about an inch overhang on all sides.
  • Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray. This is to ensure easy removal of the cake.
  • Making the Chiffon Cake

    • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine chocolate with water and cocoa powder. Cook, stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool.
    • In a bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the salt.
    • In another bowl, stir together yolks, oil, and the cooled chocolate mixture.
    • Add the dry ingredients to the yolk mixture and stir into a smooth and slightly thick batter.
