Chocolate and strawberry roll

60 g dark chocolate
4 large eggs
125 ml castor sugar
5 ml vanilla essence
15 ml water
1 ml baking soda
60 ml plain flour
125 ml self- raising flour
A pinch of salt

300 ml cream
15 ml icing sugar
15 ml strawberry juice
20-30 strawberries (cut in half)

Melt chocolate on medium heat for a minute. Preheat oven to 200C. Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla essence till light and fluffy. Add water and baking soda to chocolate and mix well. Lightly fold sifted flour, salt and chocolate mixture into the egg mixture.

Pour mixture in a 22 by 23 cm greased and paper-lined pan. Bake at 200C for 15-20 minutes. Turn out immediately onto a sheet of greased proof paper. Trim edges and roll up cake in paper. Allow to cool. Beat cream, sugar and juice until thick. Carefully unroll cake and spread it with some cream. Place three fourths of the strawberries and roll up. Decorate with remaining cream.
