CHOCOLATE CAKE ROLL
I love rolled cakes because not only are they greedy but also because they are very easy and can be prepared in no time.
I’m honest I would have eaten it while I was doing it, so I confess I smoked the first slice without worrying about resting times!
This chocolate roll with pistachio cream is a soft spiral of cocoa biscuit dough, filled with a delicious mascarpone and pistachio cream, covered with dark chocolate glaze.
A sweet that makes your mouth water just looking at it.
A must try!
I will reveal the trick to not break the cake when you roll it.
A real cascade of dark chocolate icing completes the cake.
What about an irresistible dessert to bring to the table to surprise relatives and friends.

It is possible to enrich the mascarpone and pistachio cream ganache with chocolate chips or pistachio grains to create a delicious contrast of textures.
Pistachio cream is now found almost everywhere. It is bought in shops that sell pastry products as well as in the best supermarkets. I have chosen to use Pistì pistachio cream.
Once ready, the pistachio and chocolate roll can be stored for about 3 days in the refrigerator.
It is possible to freeze the cocoa biscuit dough base.
