Light and Tasty chocolate roulade – even Weight Watchers approves :)

Yes – Weight Watchers actually likes this recipe… and how do I know? Well – they featured it in their Weight Watchers Cook Smart Entertaining cookbook!!!

I am never able to get the roulade to look as perfect as it does in the picture – but I reckon that the taste is SPOT on… really delicious and low in calories!! Hallelujah!!!

(and No – I am not converting to that horrible 4 letter word – although I know that I probably should… sigh… another monday)

Chocolate roulade

150g Caster sugar

8 egg whites

a pinch of cream of tartar

50g cocoa powder

1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract

mint sprigs

200g natural yoghurt

50g white cooking chocolate (melted) – but I don’t add it as I think the yoghurt and fruit is sufficient as a filling

  1. Spray a 33x23cm wiss roll tin with cooking spray, line with a greaseproof baking parchment and dust with 2 Tablespoons Caster sugar

  5. Scrape mixture into prepared tin
  6. Bake for 30min at 180C
  1. Leave to cool
  2. make filling – mix yoghurt, melted chocolate, caster sugar & vanilla essence.
