    Pros: rolls easily, stays together, no cracks Cons: For me this turned out to be a bland, spongy, almost chewy cake (I did not overmix the batter). Not very chocolatey, pale (as mentioned by another reviewer, KHeidger), and nearly tasteless. I even went back to ensure I hadn't left out anything in the recipe by mistake. Nope. I was hoping for a rich chocolate roll cake and this is not it. Baked for 15 minutes as mentioned by Olive in another review. Filled with a whipped cream and cream cheese icing, iced with a chocolate version of same, I'm hoping it will be acceptable for my daughter's birthday. I'll probably douse the leftovers in liqueur and cherries and serve to the adults...

    Sadly, I made two rolls that came out pale in color, unlike the beautiful dark photo shown. I then switched to a darker cocoa powder and the third roll still turned out too pale. So frustrating.
