mixing bowl Mixing Bowl
mixer Mixer
saucepan Saucepan
wire rack Wire Rack

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1-inch (40 x 25 x 2.5 cm) jellyroll pan with foil; generously grease foil.


Beat egg whites with an electric mixer, set on high speed, in a large bowl until stiff peaks form. Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar, one tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form.


Beat egg yolks and vanilla with an electric mixer, set on medium speed, for 3 minutes; gradually add the remaining sugar. Beat for 2 minutes or until thickened and lemon-coloured.


Stir flour with cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gently fold into egg yolk mixture alternately with water just until mixture is smooth. Gently fold chocolate mixture into egg whites; spread batter evenly in prepared pan.


Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly in the centre. Immediately loosen cake from edges of pan; invert on to a clean linen towel sprinkled with icing sugar. Carefully peel off foil; discard. Immediately roll cake in towel starting at the narrow end. Place on a wire rack and cool completely.


White Cream Filling: Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a small cup; let stand 1 minute to soften. Place white chips and milk in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) for 30 seconds to 1 minute; stir after 30 seconds and after every additional 10 seconds until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Add gelatin mixture and vanilla; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Cool to room temperature.


Beat whipping cream in a small bowl until stiff; gently fold into chip mixture. Chill for 10 minutes or until filling begins to set.


Chocolate Glaze: Melt butter in a small saucepan set over low heat; add cocoa and water. Cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and slightly thickened; do not boil. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Gradually add icing sugar and vanilla; whisk until smooth.


Unroll cake and remove towel. Spread White Cream Filling in an even layer over the cake; re-roll into a log. Spread Chocolate Glaze over top and sides. Chill until ready to serve. Garnish as desired.
