Easy Roll Cake Hack


  • For the cake:
  • 1 cracked chocolate sponge cake, about 6 inches
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate, melted
  • For the filling:
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp milk
  • For the topping:
  • 2 cups dark chocolate, melted
  • Powdered sugar


  • In a bowl, mash your chocolate cake with the milk and melted dark chocolate.
  • Next, roll out to approximately 10 by 14-inches between 2 sheets of cling film.
  • Prepare your cream filling, and then spread over the cake. Roll up from the shorter end, and then set aside as you prepare your topping.
  • Melt the dark chocolate, and pour over the cake. Leave to set before scattering with the powdered sugar.
  • Ready to serve!
