Today I made a Brazilian dessert called ROCAMBOLE. It's so delicious!
- 6 eggs room temperature
- 7T sugar
- 5T cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1t baking powder
Ingredients for the filling:
- 1 can of condensed milk l
- 3T cocoa powder
- Chocolate sprinkles to decorate
In a small bowl mix the egg whites until they are peaked and then set aside. In another small bowl mix the egg yolks with the sugar until you get a creamy mixture. Then add the cocoa powder and the flour slowly. I sifted my flour so that the cake comes out soft. (My sister taught me that!) Then you want to fold in the egg whites into this mixture. Slowly with a spatula mix it in, if you mix too rough the cake will be dry instead of soft. Spray a cookie sheet with butter and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. I used the 15.25X 10.25X.75 cookie sheet.
Once it's ready you want to damp a CLEAN washcloth and flip the cake onto it. The humidity from the cloth helps the rolling of the cake without it shattering. I sprinkled sugar on my cloth so that when I rolled it the sugar would penetrate on the cake. Just a thought =)
So it should look like this once rolled. While that's off to the side we can start our filling and topping. In a medium saucepan pour a can of condensed milk and 1/4 cup milk or heavy whipping cream. Add in the 3tablespoons of cocoa powder. You want a liquid-y substance, but not too liquid-y. I think the whole stirring process is about 5-8 minutes. Once it's done unroll your cake and pour some of that deliciousness in the cake. I only used half of mine for the middle so that I could also use it as a topping. My sister has this awesome white topping that she makes from scratch, maybe I'll try it next time. But that's it, with of course sprinkles on top. I love it*
