I made this for a friend's birthday party, I didn't have enough time to leave the filling in the refrigerator, and when I rolled up it all came out...even though I tried to fix it I must say it didn't look exactly appealing, but it was soooooooo god that noone even noticed!

- 4 eggs
- 115 g sugar
- cocoa powder, for dusting
- 225 g chocolate, chopped
- 3 tablespoons Creme de Cacao or 3 tablespoons Cointreau liqueur
- 2 eggs
- 250 g mascarpone cheese
- Preheat oven 180°C, grease and line with baking paper a 33x23 cm (13x9 in) swiss roll tin.
- Prepare the filling: melt chocolate and liqueur in a double boiler, when smooth remove from heat and stir in beaten egg yolks.
- Whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form, then fold them carefully in the chocolate mixture.
- Chill until needed.
- Make the roll:In a bowl whisk egg yolks and sugar until thickened and light yellow, fold in melted chocolate.
- Whisk egg whites until soft peaks form, the fold into chocolate mixture.
