Chocolate log

Note: These recipes use NZ measurements. 1 c = 1 cup = 250 ml. 1 T = 1 tablespoon = 15 ml. 1 D = 2 teaspoons. 1 t = 1 teaspoon = 5ml. If you're in America, you may find you need a little extra baking powder in recipes that use it.

4 eggs, separated
4oz flour
1/2 c sugar
115g dark chocolate
3/4 c cream
2T icing sugar
1T brandy

Beat yolks and add sugar and beat until thick and pale. Break chocolate into pieces and melt. Add to yolks and sugar. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold in. Fold in sifted flour.
Spread into a greased and floured sponge roll tin with grease proof paper on bottom at 190C for 15 minutes.
Remove and cover with layer of damp grease proof paper then put it in the refrigerator. Whip cream with icing sugar and brandy. Spread onto top and roll up.

At Christmas fill the log with whipped cream and thawed frozen raspberries. Ice with chocolate icing to resemble a log.
