Chocolate Cake Swiss!!

the Chocolate Cake Swiss – a decadent delight that captivates with its rich cocoa essence and a light, airy texture. Originating from Switzerland, this exquisite creation is a testament to the artistry of chocolate in the realm of desserts.

What distinguishes the Chocolate Cake Swiss is its unique preparation method. A delicate sponge cake is meticulously crafted by whisking eggs and sugar to a voluminous, airy consistency. The incorporation of high-quality cocoa powder lends a deep, luxurious chocolate flavor, setting it apart from ordinary chocolate cakes.

This confection embodies a harmonious balance between the indulgence of chocolate and the subtlety of a spongy, melt-in-your-mouth texture. It’s often layered with whipped cream or flavored fillings, adding an extra dimension to its already heavenly taste.

The beauty of the Chocolate Cake Swiss lies not only in its taste but also in its elegant appearance. Rolled into a swirl, it presents a stunning visual appeal, making it a centerpiece for any dessert table or a sophisticated treat for any occasion.


For the Chocolate Sponge Cake:

  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Powdered sugar (optional, for dusting)

For the Whipped Cream Filling:

  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 10×15-inch jelly roll pan or a baking sheet of similar size. Line it with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the longer sides.
  2. In a mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract on high speed for 5-7 minutes, until the mixture becomes pale, thick, and triples in volume.
  4. Gently fold the sifted dry ingredients into the egg mixture using a spatula, being careful not to deflate the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the cake is set and springs back when lightly touched.
  7. While the cake is still warm, dust its surface with powdered sugar. Place a clean kitchen towel over the powdered sugar and carefully invert the cake onto the towel. Remove the parchment paper.
  8. Starting from one of the shorter sides, gently roll the cake and the towel together into a tight spiral. Place it seam side down and allow it to cool completely.
  9. While the cake is cooling, prepare the whipped cream filling. In a mixing bowl, beat the cold heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  10. Carefully unroll the cooled cake and spread the whipped cream filling evenly over the surface.
  11. Re-roll the cake without the towel. Place the Chocolate Cake Swiss Roll on a serving platter, seam side down.
  12. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight to set.
  13. Before serving, dust the top with more powdered sugar if desired. Slice and enjoy your Chocolate Cake Swiss Roll!
