this came from a wonderful cook in Holmes County Ohio..Edna can fill with a variety of fillings..from fruit to whipped cream...I have even filled it with German Chocolate Cake Frosting..much easier to serve..if you want a yellow cake roll..omit cocoa and add vanilla

This is a good chocolate roll. It is very similar to the recipe I use. I only bake mine for 15 minutes. When it is cooled completely, I fill it with a buttercream it and dust with powdered sugar; then chill it for a couple of hours for easier slicing. An electric knife works great for slicing.
