* I tried this recipe for my Chocolate Swiss Roll (4 eggs recipe for 22x28cm baking pan, 20g all purpose flour: 20g cornstarch: 10g cocoa) the cake were a lil bit thick, but still easy peasy to roll, it will be the best if i can taste more the cocoa flavor. maybe I will add more cocoa powder next time.
