  • Preheat oven to 180?C, 350?F, gas mark 4. Line a 33cm x 23cm (13in x 9in) Swiss roll tin with baking parchment.
  • Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a heatproof bowl, place over a pan of hot water and stir until melted or microwave for a minute or so to save time. Cool slightly.
  • Separate the eggs and place the whites in one large bowl and the yolks in another with the sugar. Beat with an electric whisk until thick, pale and creamy.
  • Wash the beaters and whisk the egg whites until stiff. Fold the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mix, then fold in the egg whites.
  • Spoon into the prepared tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes until firm to touch. Leave for 5 minutes then cover with a clean damp tea towel. Cool.
  • Place the mandarins, sugar, rind and juice of the lime into a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook until reduced to a syrupy mix and leave to cool. Whip the cream until really thick.
  • Remove the cloth, turn roulade out onto a piece of baking parchment, sprinkled with icing sugar, peel off the lining paper. Spread roulade evenly with the cream, spoon over the orangey mix and roll up like a Swiss roll. Decorate with a few whole mandarins and mint, sprinkle with icing sugar.
