Grease well and pour the batter into the tin.Bake in preheated oven at 180ºC for 15-20 minutes (please check from 15 minutes as the mine was ready to leave then).Call immediately for a damp cloth sprinkled with sugar or follow my steps above,
remembering to remove the drier edges.Remove the paper and roll up carefully.Leave to cool in the wet tea towel.Prepare your stuffing (I used chocolate truffle and fresh raspberries ).
When cool, gently unroll the roll and spread the filling, using a spatula or the back of a spoon. Reverse it again, as tight as you can.
