Black Forest Swiss Roll

This recipe is really unique as it requires no flour, just cocoa powder.
I turned it into a Black Forest Swiss Roll because I had soak some cherries with brandy and wanted to clear it off.
Also thanks to my hubby's friend, SW for bringing home a bottle of kirsch for

Learning: The texture of this cake is soft and cottony.  The chocolate is also intense in this one.  Love it.

I did not crack this cake too badly. Only a small section was affected so I am pretty pleased with it.

I shared this with my neighbour and she said it was yummy.  Glad that she enjoyed it.
