Cranberry Chocolate Roulade

Waiting for quite some time before I recieved Carol's baking books. My first try on her recipe is... roulade. I must say that I like Carol's baking books. I love the step-by-step photos and tips which she took effort to compile. I'm using Carol's Banana Chocolate Roulade recipe and steps to make Cranberry Chocolate Roulade, and replaced the banana with dried cranberries. Attached is the ingredients used but not the steps, the original recipe is in Mandarin which I don't think that I can translate it accurately.

Recipe adapted from Carol's banana chocolate roulade 巧克力香蕉巻

A. Flour Mixture

5 egg yolks
20g icing sugar
30g olive oil
60g cake flour (or top flour) 
30g cocoa powder
3 tbsp milk

B. Meringue
5 egg whites
1 tsp lemon juice
60g icing sugar

C. Filling
150g whipping cream
15g icing sugar
some dried cranberries

In the recipe, Carol shared that cutting some lines at the edge of the sponge would prevent breaking when roll-up the roulade, yes, this is true for me!
