Chocolate Swiss Roll (Jam Roll, Jelly Roll)

Chocolate swiss rolls are one of my childhood favourites. I loved the lightness as well as the taste. This is one of the recipies I love to bake all the time.
When you bake a swiss roll make sure not to over cook it. The other thing to remember is to cover it once you take out of the oven. When you cover it it stops cracking when folding as well as it holds the moist.  If you fill with this butter cream you can freeze this up to 6 months with out a problem.
