Chocolate Cake Roll
If you love a chocolate and the classic jelly roll cake, then you will be thrilled to try this delicious Chocolate Cake Roll!
If you’ve never made a roll cake before, it can seem intimidating, but I encourage you to give it a try.
This recipe is pretty simple, and uses a boxed Chocolate Cake mix, to make the process go pretty easy.
Instead of following the directions on the box though, follow the instructions below.
The adjusted ingredients are what makes the cake easy to roll.
Even if it cracks a little when you’re rolling it up, don’t worry, when you add in the filling, that helps hide imperfections 🙂
To make the cake, preheat your oven to 350.
Mix together your cake mix, eggs, water, and oil.
Beat on low for one minute scraping sides with a mixer.
Pour batter into your prepared jelly roll baking pan.
Bake 15-18 minutes or until cake springs back.
Turn cake upside down onto a large piece of clean parchment paper sprinkled with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar; carefully remove parchment paper or silicone baking mat from the jelly roll baking pan.
While hot, carefully roll up cake and parchment paper.
Place on a wire cooling rack and cool for one hour.
Meanwhile, Mix together cream cheese, butter and sugar.
Mix on high until well combined.
Spread cream cheese filling over the cake.
Roll cake back up.
Slice, serve, and enjoy!
