  2. Spread the batter into a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated 180° C (350° F).
  4. Remove from the oven, turn out onto a damp cloth, remove the parchment, then sprinkle lightly with a little cold water so the sponge can be rolled up gently in the cloth.

  2. Stir, off the heat, for 5-6 minutes until smooth. Let cool.


  1. Gently unroll the sponge from the cloth. Spread half the ganache over the surface.

  3. Spread the rest of the ganache over the surface and refrigerate the log for at least 2 hours. Decorate with the remaining raspberries and some silver chocolate dragées.
