Mocha Roll Recipe
1 cup cake flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp instant coffee powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 egg yolks
1 tbsp instant coffee dissolved in 1/4 cup hot water
1/4 cup oil (I used olive oil)
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 cup sugar
MOCHA ICING RECIPE:
2 egg whites
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp instant coffee powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp instant coffee dissolved in 1/2 cup hot water.
12 tbsp softened butter
*** If you don't want it strong, you can always adjust the portioning of the coffee powder.***
HOW TO MAKE MOCHA CAKE:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
In a bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy.
Add cream of tartar.
Gradually add 1/4 cup of sugar while beating
in high speed until still stiff. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine all the liquid ingredients (coffee, egg yolks and oil). Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, coffee powder and salt.
Pour-in the liquid ingredients to the flour mixture.
Continue mixing until light & fluffy.
Using a spatula, gently fold in the egg whites mixture into the batter mixture.
Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pan and smooth top with a spatula. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Cake is ready if toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Remove from oven.
Turn the cake out on a towel lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Slowly peel off the parchment paper.
Roll the still warm cake with the towel and leave on a wire rack (with the towel on it) to cool completely.
**Note** You don't roll the towel inside the cake. You just use the towel to hold the cake and to roll it.
Unroll the cake and transfer onto a parchment paper.
Spread with a thin layer of Mocha frosting (recipe below) and re-roll the cake, frost the outside of the roll.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing.
Serve & Enjoy!

Beat the egg whites until frothy.

Boil for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from heat and slowly pour hot syrup into whites, beating constantly until meringue is cool to the touch.
***NOTE*** Before proceeding, make sure
meringue has cooled down.
Add softened butter (1 tbsp at a time), beating well after each addition until mixture is smooth.
may look curdled
before all of the butter is added but will come back together by the time beating is finished.
