Now THIS is the main event of the evening. I actually dream about this cake all year long, but don't make it often because there are 9 (count 'em, 9) eggs in it...*drool*. Thoroughly gluten free and delicious! It's a bit tricky to roll and usually cracks, but you can cover it with icing.

Cake Roll (makes 8 - 10 servings)
Ingredients

7 oz. dark, good-quality semi-sweet chocolate
4 tbsp strong coffee
7 eggs, separated
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp cocoa

It gets even better....dreams of chocolate....
Directions
  • Grease a 10 by 15" jelly roll pan and cover with wax paper (a baking sheet works just fine!)
  • Melt chocolate and coffee over hot water in a double boiler & stir until chocolate is melted. Cool slightly.
  • Beat the egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy and pale yellow.
  • Add chocolate & coffee to yolks (make sure the chocolate has cooled slightly).
  • Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup sugar, beating gradually until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Place batter in pan and bake 15 - 20 minutes or until firm.
  • Remove and cool for 5 minutes. Place a damp towel over roll and cool completely (really make sure that it's damp. This will keep the cake malleable for the rolling whenever you decide to do it). Store in a cool place.
  • When ready, remove towel and sprinkle cake with cocoa. Place an ungreased sheet of wax paper over roll and turn upside down. (If you're nervous about this, have a cutting board or something firm under the sheet to stop the cake from falling out completely. Usually the pan needs a good firm pat on the back to make the cake come out, though.)
  • Spread mocha filling over cake and roll quickly. Store in fridge.
Mocha Cream Filling
Ingredients

9 tbsp pareve margarine
3/4 cup fine sugar
3 oz semi-sweet chocolate
2 tbsp strong coffee
2 eggs

Directions
  • Cream margarine and sugar very well.
  • Melt chocolate and coffee in a double boiler (or in a glass bowl over a sauce pan with water. Don't let the bowl touch the water), stirring constantly. Cool slightly.
  • Add chocolate to margarine mixture. Add eggs and continue beating until smooth and light (you really need an electric mixture here otherwise the icing is way too runny and will squelch out the sides of the cake when rolled)
  • Garnish cake with confectioner's sugar and shaved chocolate (if you really are that hardcore...)
