Valentine's chocolate log

Valentine's chocolate log


  1. Whip the eggs and sugar into a mousse-like texture, then fold in the flour and cocoa. Pour mixture into a 10” by 15” tin, lined with greaseproof paper. Bake in the oven at 17OC for 7-1O minutes – it should be firm but springy to the touch when ready. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. Mix 200g of the yogurt with the raspberries. Set aside.
  3. Melt the chocolate gently in the microwave, or over a bain-marie. Once melted, stir the remaining 3oog of yogurt into the chocolate and mix thoroughly to make a smooth, glossy frosting.
  4. Spread the raspberry yogurt mixture evenly over the cool sponge then, using the greaseproof paper, roll the sponge up making sure the first roll is quite tight.
  5. Roll the rest of the sponge up like a carpet, peeling the paper off as you go. Move the finished roll onto your serving dish with the end of the sponge sitting underneath the roll.
  6. With a spatula, spread the chocolate frosting evenly over the sponge log. Place in the fridge to set for about an hour and serve with raspberries and double cream.
