Recipe Notes

  • Be sure to let the cake cool completely before unrolling.
  • Store the cake in an airtight container to keep it fresh. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Line a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Slowly start adding in the sugar and beat until thick.
  3. Add the buttermilk, oil, food coloring, vinegar and vanilla. Beat until combined. 
  4. Combine the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda in another bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the dry mixture into the wet ingredients and beat for about 2 minutes. Pour the mixture evenly onto the prepared pan. 
  5. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 12 to 15 minutes or until it springs back when touched. Remove and cool about 5 minutes before inverting onto a kitchen towel. Carefully peel off the parchment paper. Roll the cake up and cool completely. 
  6. To make the filling, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together. Add the powdered sugar and melted chocolate and beat until smooth. 
  7. Unroll the cake. Spread the filling all over the cake leaving a 1/2-inch border. Roll it up. Trim the ends and place it on a serving platter. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Dust with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
