Brazo Gitano

What you'll need


Working Method

Prepare sponge cake according to manufacturer's instructions.  Line half sheet trays with parchment paper and deposit 1 lb. prepared cake batter in each.  Spread evenly with an offset metal spatula.  Bake at 350°F until cake is golden brown and springs back lightly when touched.  While cake is still warm, invert it onto a freshly cleaned side towel and peel off parchment paper.  Roll the cake up, using the towel in between.  Let cake cool completely.  After cake is cool, gently unroll and using a #6 white scoop, place 2 scoops of filling on prepared cake.  Spread to edges and roll back up.  Dust with powdered sugar.

Additional Info

Chef Tips

Rolling the cake on a towel rather than parchment paper allows the cake to breath as it cools, allowing greater flexibility when filling and rolling back up.
