Instructions

Use 12×16 inch jelly roll pan, line with aluminum foil (dull side up).

Spray with baking spray and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl beat 6 eggs and 3/4 cup sugar until triples in volume. (9 minutes)

Sift the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt.

Add into eggs mixture and fold gently using a spatula.

Important: Don’t use mixer when adding flour mixture.

Fold using a spatula.

Be sure that flour mixture is incorporated into eggs mixture.

Spread the batter on the prepared jelly roll pan.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

Cool completely. (for about 2 hours)

Filling

Melt the chocolate using a double boiler method.

Cool it.

In a mixing bowl mix 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream for about 3 minutes.

Add Nutella and chocolate and mix until incorporated. (1 minute)

Keep in the fridge until your cake is ready.

Now, if your cake is cool we can start my favorite part…

ASSEMBLY

Cut the cake with a knife into five equal pieces.

The size is 3×12 inches.

Cut through the underlying foil so you can each move independently. (don’t worry)

Use your first piece (3×12 inch) and spread with Nutella filling.

Roll the first cake.

Use the aluminum foil as the cake support, begin to roll the cake

into a roll and continue tucking cake as you peeling away the aluminum foil.

Place the rolled cake upright on a plate. (or what you have for your cake)

Then back to jelly pan where you have 4 strips of cake left.

Spread raspberry jam on second strip/cake and lift it from the foil.

Wrap the second cake around the roll on the serving plate.

Don’t be afraid, just do it.

Now use the third cake strip and cover with Nutella filling.

Lift from the aluminum foil and wrap around the roll on the serving plate.

Continue with the next 2 strips or until done.

Then…

Wrap the whole cake in plastic wrap and keep in the fridge for 3 hours.

Now, back to gossip.

Could the real genius please stand up?

Albert Einstein sit down. NOW!

In the 1980s Evan Walker Harris published a theory that Einstein’s first wife Mileva co-wrote his 1905 theory of special relativity. He believes that Albert may have actually stolen his wife’s theories.

Can you believe this?

Of course you don’t. But what if you learn when they divorced in 1919, the divorce settlement stated that if Einstein were to win a Nobel Prize, Mileva would receive all royalties…..

So, in this “ME TOO” life let’s not forget who is the real genius?

Mileva, stand up!

I believe it was YOU!

To learn more about Mileva check the link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mileva_Mari%C4%87

“Mileva Marić-Einstein or Mileva Marić-Ajnštajn, was a Serbian mathematician. She was the only woman among Albert Einstein‘s fellow students at Zürich‘s Polytechnic and was the second woman to finish a full program of study at the Department of Mathematics and Physics.[1] Marić and Einstein were collaborators and lovers and had a daughter Lieserl in 1902 whose fate is unknown. They later had two sons, Hans Albert and Eduard. “
