📋 Ingredients:

For the Chocolate Sponge Cake:

  • 🥚 4 large eggs
  • 🥄 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 🌿 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 🌾 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 🍫 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 🌿 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 🧂 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 🧈 Powdered sugar (for dusting)

For the Peanut Butter Filling:

  • 🥜 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 🥄 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 🥄 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 🥛 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 🌿 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • 🍫 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 🥛 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 🌿 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

📝 Directions:

1️⃣ Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a 15×10-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper and lightly grease the paper.

2️⃣ Prepare the Cake Batter: In a large bowl, beat the eggs, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer on high speed for about 3-4 minutes, or until thick and pale. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined.

3️⃣ Bake the Cake: Pour the batter into the prepared jelly roll pan, spreading it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.

4️⃣ Roll the Cake: While the cake is baking, lay out a clean kitchen towel and dust it generously with powdered sugar. When the cake is done, immediately loosen the edges with a knife and invert the cake onto the prepared towel. Peel off the parchment paper and roll the cake up with the towel, starting from the short end. Let it cool completely.

5️⃣ Prepare the Peanut Butter Filling: In a medium bowl, beat the peanut butter and softened butter together until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract, beating until fluffy and well combined.

6️⃣ Fill the Cake: Carefully unroll the cooled cake and spread the peanut butter filling evenly over the surface. Roll the cake back up (without the towel) and place it seam-side down on a serving platter.

7️⃣ Make the Chocolate Ganache: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and heavy cream. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract.

8️⃣ Top with Ganache: Pour the chocolate ganache over the cake roll, spreading it evenly. Allow the ganache to set for about 15 minutes.

9️⃣ Serve: Slice and serve your decadent Peanut Butter Cup Cake Roll!
