An old favourite. Ma used to always use more sherry/rum than what was required.
2 Jam Rolls
8 ozs cooking chocolate
3 eggs – separated
3 tablespoons of sherry or rum
Melt chocolate and sherry/rum in saucepan over boiling water, stir in beaten egg yolks, cook a couple of minutes. Allow to cool. Beat egg whites until they form peaks, add to chocolate mixture. Line a basin, about the size of a small mix-master bowl, with grease proof paper. Put a layer of jam roll then a layer of chocolate mixture, alternate these to the top of the basin. Cover and leave in refrigerator a day or two to set. Turn out and cover with whipped cream and slivers of almonds or grated chocolate.
