Before you start

A hand-held or stand mixer will make things easier for this recipe.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Separate yolks and egg whites.
  2. In a bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center then add the egg yolks, maple syrup, water and vanilla. Beat with a mixer at maximum speed for about 5 min.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the whites and cream of tartar, using a mixer, until stiff peaks are formed.
  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the flour mixture, using a spatula.
  5. Spread the mixture into a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Spread the dough evenly, using a spatula, to form a rectangle of about 25 X 35 cm (10 X 14 po).
  6. Bake in the middle of the oven for 12 to 13 min, or until a light finger pressure leaves no indentation.
  7. Topple the cake on a towel that has been previously sprinkled with icing sugar. Carefully remove the parchment paper, roll the cake loosely, then let stand until cool.
  8. Unroll the cake, spread the raspberry jam, then roll again. Place on a serving dish and sprinkle with icing sugar. Let stand at least 1 h before serving.
