This delicious chocolate roulade with hazelnuts was created on the show Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard on Channel 4.


  1. Preheat the oven to 210°C (fan 190°C , gas mark 7). Separate the egg whites from the yolks.

  2. Whisk the sugar and the egg yolks at full speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix the flour and nuts into the yolks mixture and add the melted butter.

  3. Whisk the whites in to firm peaks with a pinch of salt and gently fold them in to the rest of the mixture.

  4. With a palette knife spread the mixture evenly on a lined baking tray.  Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cover with a tea towel until it has cooled down.

  5. For the mousseline, bring the milk & vanilla extract to the boil in a small saucepan.  In mean time whisk the eggs, yolk and sugar together until pale.  Add the sieved flour and mix well.

  6. Pour a bit of the hot milk into the egg mixture and mix well.  Pour the hot milk and egg mixture back in the saucepan on the heat until it boils whilst continuing to mix.  Melt 100g of the butter into the mixture.  Cover with clingfilm and allow to cool down. When cooled, whisk in the rest of the butter and the praline paste.

  7. For the hazelnut ganache, melt the milk chocolate on a Bain Marie or in a microwave. Melt in the soft butter and fold in the hazelnuts until nice and glossy.

  8. To build the roulade: turn over the sponge on a clean sheet of baking paper and gently peel off the paper.  Spread the mousseline onto the top of the sponge evenly with a pallet knife.  Tightly roll the roulade and place in the fridge to set for one hour.

  9. Once cool, trim the edges of the roulade and place it on a cooling wire rack. Evenly pour over the ganache. Before it is set completely, move it to your serving board.  Decorate with caramelised hazelnuts and chocolate shavings
