Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Line greased 15x10x1-inch pan with parchment or waxed paper. Grease and flour paper; set aside. Beat first 4 ingredients in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Spread 3 cups batter into pan; tap pan gently on counter to remove any air bubbles. Pour remaining batter into 4 to 6 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake cake and cupcakes 15 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean.
  • Meanwhile, place large sheet of parchment paper on top of clean kitchen towel; sprinkle evenly with 3 Tbsp. powdered sugar. Invert cake onto towel; remove pan and top sheet of parchment paper. Starting at 1 of the short ends, roll up cake with parchment paper and towel. Cool on wire rack 30 min. Remove cupcakes from pan to wire rack; cool completely. Set cupcakes aside for another use.
  • Grate enough chocolate to measure 1 Tbsp. grated chocolate; set aside. Microwave remaining chocolate in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until partially melted. Stir until completely melted. Beat 1/2 cup powdered sugar and cream cheese spread in small bowl with mixer until well blended. Stir in melted chocolate.
  • Unroll cake; remove paper and towel. Spread cake with cream cheese mixture; roll up. Refrigerate 30 min.; place on serving plate. Stir instant coffee granules into COOL WHIP; spread over log. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Cut into 20 (1/2-inch-thick) slices to serve. Sprinkle with reserved grated chocolate.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I had a big problem with this recipe. I had a big problem with this recipe. I ended up having to remake the cake part of it because the first one broke into so many pieces when I unrolled it. My second one broke as well, but we were able to save it. I believe the powdered sugar on the wax paper made the cake stick and separate. Also, the frosting had WAY to strong of a coffee flavor for everyone in the family, so I ended up scraping all the frosting off and refrosting with only 2-3 tsp of coffee mixed in instead of 3 tbsp. People like the cake, but not enough to go through the trouble of making it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is amazing! This is amazing! I had no trouble at all, I made 4 of them all different variations. Some pumpkin, lemon curd with raspberry, cream cheese and this. I used parchment paper and I sprayed a buttery spray like pam on it. Not an ounce of problem. Quickly rolled it loosely in a towl and let it rest. Once cooled, I prepared the ingredients and began to reroll. Not a problem. Everyone loves this and I have to make a load again for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. Diana

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I think that parchment paper is better than waxed paper and no confectioners sugar at all on them. I think that parchment paper is better than waxed paper and no confectioners sugar at all on them. I also tried it with a pudding/sugar-free white chocolate mixture is much better than coffee. Use the same pudding mixture that u used in the lemon strawberry creamcheese pie. You'll see a big difference. let the cake cool completely folks and it won't crack so much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was absolutely disgusting and dissapointing. This was absolutely disgusting and dissapointing. I made twelve of these cakes, and each one broke into many pieces. When I got one right, the coffee topping was so terrible and strong that I saw my guests scrape it off, and all of the kids left their pieces untouched. I will never make this cake again!

I am not a big coffee fan so I wasn't fond of the topping, however, the cake and the filling was delicious! I think I will use the idea of this recipe to make a similar cake for Christmas.
