The leaves are vibrant, the breeze is chilly, and the grocery stores are stocking peppermint bark. How did the holidays arrive so fast?! Well, I've decided it may be time to start prepping some healthy, yet scrumptious recipes to satisfy, so I'm beginning with a favorite... my Italian Orange Chocolate Cake Roll with Goat Cheese Frosting that is lightly sweet, yet rich at the same time!
I made a very short (30 second) quick guide to making this scrumptious cake roll that will hopefully help resolve any confusion. It truly is simple to make once you visualize the rolling process! And if you've already made a cake roll before, than you are all good to go ;)
Italian Orange Chocolate Cake Roll with Goat Cheese Frosting
The key to preventing cake roll breakage is to (1) not over bake the cake, (2) don't over mix the batter / add too much flour, and (3) roll gently / slowly. The eggs play a crucial role in creating elasticity in the (sponge-like) cake to ensure it will roll / unroll nicely.
I tested this recipe out 4 times to make sure it was fool proof for you all. I know the most frustrating part is spending all that time preparing a cake and then at the final step it falls apart. So, just make sure you follow the recipe to a tee ;)
However, if you do have a few cracks in the process - NO WORRIES! The frosting will help seal it together in the fridge and the chocolate ganache will make it aesthetically pleasing!
Now, it's time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness!
