This is how it's made Chocolate Nut Roll

  1. Step 1

    Prepare the filling.  Grind the nuts to a fine powder in a food processor.  Gently warm the Stork, evaporated milk and caster sugar in a small pan until melted and combined. Stir in the ground nuts and cocoa powder.  Heat gently, stirring well until the mixture thickens.  Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl to cool to room temperature.

  2. Step 2

    To make the dough combine the flour, sugar, yeast, salt, soured cream, eggs and melted stork.  Mix to a rough dough. Knead the very soft dough in the bowl for 10 minutes, pinching the dough with your fingertips, lifting and pressing back down. Transfer to a lightly greased bowl, cover and allow to rise for 1 hour.

  3. Step 3

    Lightly grease the worksurface and split the dough in half.  Roll out each portion to a rectangle approx. 25cm x 40cm.  Spread with half of the cooled filling and scatter with half of the choc chips.  Fold over the two short edges just a little to encase the filling and roll the dough from the long edge tightly to make a long roll.  Pinch together the dough at the seam.

  4. Step 4

    Transfer to a well greased or lined baking tray, cover loosely and allow to rise for 3 hours. Brush well with milk and bake (160c (fan)/180c/Gas Mark 4) in the oven for 35 minutes until golden.

  5. Step 5

    Cool on a wire rack and serve.
