Chocolate Roulade

Well here begins the baking for my Baking 2012. Eep! I’m excited. I have a top ten list of my dream bakes to learn how to do this year. And here I’m starting off with roulade. It’s awesome. Did you know you basically only need eggs and sugar? Perfect for when you’re out of butter (that’s me all the time), so in facts it is a perfect store cupboard bake. I started off with Mary Berry’s Ultimate Chocolate Roulade. What better way than to start with a recipe from the queen of baking right?

It was such a simple recipe and everything went absolutely swimmingly except until I went to roll up my roulade. It totally stuck to the baking parchment. Groan! Oh well, I just used the baker’s cover up – icing sugar. Also I developed my own filling. Instead of using the orange zest in the recipe, I added a splash of toffee vodka to the whipped cream filling. And yum! Chocolate, toffee, boozy loveliness.

But I don’t think this is roulades ticked off my list just yet. I’m going to solve this sticking problem with the next one fingers crossed.

Banoffee Cake

Banoffee Cake anyone? Well this is a kid of invention of mine. One of those things you put together using whatever you have lying around your kitchen, when you have a serious craving for cake. And it’s yum. It’s so simple, really it is a banana cake (recipe here) with butter cream mixed with some toffee sauce, and then more toffee sauce on top. Super simple, and quick. Perfect for a Friday fix when you are low on energy from a long week.

That absolutely describes me. Thank crunchie it’s Friday! Happy weekend everyone. What do you have planned?
