500g Icing Sugar plus more icing sugar for dusting
250g Butter Unsalted
Preheat the oven to 180˚C (fan 160°C, gas mark 6). Grease and line a swiss roll tin with baking paper.
Using a stand or hand mixer whisk the caster sugar and eggs in a large bowl until pale and light.
Sift together the flour and cocoa powder and gently fold into the egg mixture using a metal spoon. Pour into the prepared tin, tilting it so that it covers the whole surface.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until firm yet springy to the touch. Dust a large sheet of paper with caster sugar and then turn the sponge onto it. Trim off the edges. Make a dent 1cm from the edge and tightly roll up the sponge and leave to cool.
Using a HAND MIXER mix together the icing sugar and butter, then add the melted chocolate and milk then beat until smooth.
Unroll the sponge, fill generously with the filling
Roll the sponge back up then cover the outside with the filling.
Run a fork along the outside to create a yule log effect
