KitchenAids Coffee Event

It's hard working 6 day weeks. I trudge home every night utterly exhausted and I wake up some mornings having to peel my eyelids apart. I seem to find myself a little short on time these days, however as one would be able to deduce from the title above - the KitchenAid has finally arrived! Pearl metallic it is! I couldn't bear to see the beautiful new machine sitting so lonesome, so untouched. What better way to mark the arrival of my new baby than by celebrating the completely electromechanical efficiency of whisk and beater with Monthly Mingle #26! It's very simple I admit, but this single mother doesn't have much leisure time to work with.

Sponge Roll
3 eggs
60 g castor sugar
3 g vanilla extract
50 g flour
Cream eggs and sugar until pale and doubled in volume (approx 4 mins).
Mix through vanilla and flour.
Spread onto a baking tray lined with non-stick paper about 5mm thick.
Bake at 220ÂșC for 5 mins or until cooked through.
Cool on tray.

3 egg yolks
25 g milk
100 g castor sugar
40 g dark chocolate
4 g instant coffee
10 g butterscotch schnapps
300 g unsalted butter, soft
Whisk eggs, milk, sugar, chocolate and coffee in a bowl over a baine marie until completely melted and emulsified.
Transfer to mixer and beat for 6 minutes or until cool.
Add butterscotch and butter and beat until aerated.

Turn sponge upside down and spread on a thin layer of coffee buttercream.
Roll up and refrigerate until set before slicing.
