low carb chocolate roll cake
low carb chocolate roll cake , Summer is slowly on its way, so it is time to start thinking of the lovely summer desserts
Well, of course, you can make this in the winter as well, but to me, anything with lots of yogurts, cream cheese or curd cheese reminds me of the summer.
And if you have to leave the dessert in the fridge, to get a that nice oft cold sweet treat (maybe with a bowl of ice cream), there the summer goes.
This chocolate roulade is so popular that even if we have guests and I prepare a variety of choices, a roulade is the first gone.
I love the softness of it and even before guests arrive, I usually cut a few pieces for myself.
Well no more talking and let us get directly to the process of making it
Ingredients for low carb chocolate roll cake
- 6 Eggs
- 60g (9 Tbsp) Ground almonds
- 1 Tsp Baking powder
- 1 Tsp Xanthan gum
- 3 Tbsp Sukrin Plus (6 Tbsp Swerve or equivalent sweetener)
- 3 Tbsp Cocoa
- 500g Curd cheese
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 2 Tbsp Sukrin Plus (4 Tbsp Swerve or equivalent sweetener)
- 50g Low Carb Chocolate
- 2 Tbsp Coconut oil
Preheat the oven on 190 C
Mix egg whites separately and place it aside
Mix egg yolks with sugar.
Mix all the grained almonds, baking powder and xantan gum together
Once egg yolks are mixed, slowly add grained almonds mixture and cocoa
Once all mixed, with a spatula add whipped egg whites and fold it gently
Place in the oven for 20 minutes
Once baked, take it out and place the parchment paper with the baked base on a wet towel.
In that way it will be easier to separate the base from the parchment paper.
Leave it for circa 5 minutes and then slowly start peeling the base from the parchment paper.
Once all taken out, make holes all over the base
For the filling, just place all the ingredients in the mixer and let it all mix properly
Place the filling on top of the baked base and slowly roll it together
Once all rolled, place the roll into a plastic wrap and firmly wrap it, so the roulade holds properly.
Place it in the fridge for 8 hours, best overnight
When you are ready to serve, prepare the glaze by heating the chocolate with coconut oil over the double boiler and once all melted and cooled a bit, pour it over the cake
Place the glaze on top of the roulade and serve
