"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

1 C sugar
1/2 C water
1 tsp vanilla
1 square unsweetened chocolate
1 tsp butter
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 Tbsp boiling water
1 1/2 C sweetened whipped cream

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa and set aside.

Beat the 3 eggs until very thick and lemon colored. Gradually beat in 1 cup of sugar.

Blend in on low speed the water and vanilla. Slowly mix in dry ingredients.

Pour into greased and foil lined 15-1/2x10-1/2" jelly roll pan. Bake 12 to 15 minutes at 375.

When baked, loosen edges and immediately turn upside down on towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Remove foil. While cake is still hot, roll cake and towel from narrow end. Cool on wire rack.

To make the thin chocolate icing, melt together the unsweetened chocolate and 1 tsp butter over hot water. Remove from hot water and blend in sifted powdered sugar and boiling water. Beat only until smooth but not stiff.

Unroll cake, remove towel. Spread with sweetened whipped cream. Roll again. Frost cake with thin chocolate icing.
