Chocolate Swiss Roll Recipe

Chocolate Swiss Roll is on my to do list for a long time. Finally i made it for this christmas because i wanted to use this swiss roll to make my yule log cake. I will soon share it. This swiss roll turned out to be so moist and soft. Loved it to the core. The cake itself is very easy to make and it is a fool proof recipe. You can never go wrong in this..

I have already shared a jam swiss roll and cream swiss roll.
