For the mini rolls
- 35g cocoa powder
- 100g maple sugar
- 25ml maple syrup
- 4 eggs
- 25g butter
For the maple cream cheese filling
- 200g cream cheese
- 15g maple sugar
- 20ml maple syrup
- 40g melted butter
- 1tsp vanilla extract
To make the mini rolls
- Preheat the oven 180°C fan.
- To make the sponge, sieve the cocoa powder into a small bowl, add the butter, the hot maple syrup then combine. Set aside.
- Put 40g of maple sugar and the egg yolks in a bowl and whisk together until light, thick and fluffy. Add the chocolate mixture and whisk until combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks. Add the remaining 60g of maple sugar and whisk until the sugar has dissolved.
- Beat one third of the meringue mixture into the chocolate mixture to loosen. Using a large spoon, fold the remaining egg whites through the mixture until fully combined.
- Spread the mixture onto a silicone or baking parchment sheet. Bake for 12 minutes, until cooked through and springy.
To make the filling
- Beat the cream cheese, maple sugar, maple syrup and the vanilla together, then add the melted butter. Mix until the cream is nice and soft.
To assemble the mini rolls
- Turn out the cooled sponge onto 2 sheets of baking paper. Peel off the top layer of baking paper. Cut the edges to make a perfect rectangle.
- Spread the filling on the sponge, trim the ends and cut each roll.
- Place the rolls, seam-sides down on a cooling rack and chill for 15 minutes to firm up.
- To finish, melt the dark chocolate together in a bowl suspended over a pan of barely simmering water. Place the cooling rack over a baking tin (to catch the chocolate) and dip, spread or pour the chocolate over each mini roll to coat. Leave to set.
