First, we start the with the most essential part the sponge cake. In a pan, heat milk and cocoa powder till it's fully dissolved. Next, we prepare the egg mixture by placing egg yolk, whole egg, cooking oil, milk and cocoa powder in the Kenwood Chef XL Sense stand mixer. Attach on the K beater and mix well. Add in salt and flour, beat till all ingredients have fully combined.
For the meringue, place egg white and cream of tar tar in the Kenwood stand mixer bowl and attach the whisk. Beat on high speed till its frothy and add sugar in 3 batches. Continue beating till its peak forms. Scoop 1/3 of the meringue into the mixture and fold in gently. Pour in the remaining meringue to the mixture and fold till just combined. Pour the batter into the lined baking tray and bake for 15 mins at 180°C.
While the sponge cake is being baked, prepare the coffee syrup. Add all ingredients in a saucepan and stir to mix evenly. Bring the mixture to a boil. Next, lower the heat and allow it to simmer till a syrupy mixture has formed.
When the cake has been baked, remove the cake from the tray and lay it on the tabletop. While it is still warm, roll the cake into a roulade and let it set in shape. Unroll, brush coffee syrup onto the cake and layer with chocolate frosting. Carefully roll the cake to form a tight roulade. Spread the remaining chocolate frosting over the cake and use a fork to draw long lines down its length to create a wooden, bark-like effect in traditional Christmas log cakes.
