How to make a chocolate meringue roulade

Ingredients

4 egg whites

200 grams caster sugar

3 tablespoons (45 ml) cocoa powder

50 grams chopped dark chocolate

2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

2 teaspoons cornflour

For the filling

250 ml whipped cream

200 grams blackberries

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 356 degrees Fahrenheit.

Beat the egg whites until stiff. Beat in 2 tablespoons of sugar at a time until the mixture is stiff and glossy. Fold in the sifted cocoa powder, chopped chocolate, vinegar and cornflour. Line a Swiss roll tin with wax paper. Spoon the mixture into the tin and place in the centre of the oven. Turn the oven down to 150 degrees Celsius or 302 degrees Fahrenheit so the meringue cooks slowly and becomes chewy. Leave for 40 minutes and then turn off the oven and slightly open the door of the oven until the meringue is completely cool.

Loosen the meringue from the wax paper and spread with the cream and blackberry filling. Use the wax paper to roll the meringue. It will crack a bit. Sprinkle with cocoa powder.

AUTHOR BIO:

Hello, my name is Robbie, short for Roberta. I am an author with seven published children’s picture books in the Sir Chocolate books series for children aged 2 to 9 years old (co-authored with my son, Michael Cheadle), one published middle grade book in the Silly Willy series and one published preteen/young adult fictionalised biography about my mother’s life as a young girl growing up in an English town in Suffolk during World War II called While the Bombs Fell (co-authored with my mother, Elsie Hancy Eaton). All of my children’s book are written under Robbie Cheadle and are published by TSL Publications.

I also have a book of poetry called Open a new door, with fellow South African poet, Kim Blades.

I have recently branched into adult and young adult horror and supernatural writing and, in order to clearly differential my children’s books from my adult writing, I plan to publish these books under Roberta Eaton Cheadle. My first supernatural book published in that name, Through the Nethergate, is now available.

I have participated in a number of anthologies:

  • Two short stories in #1 Amazon bestselling anthology, Dark Visions, a collection of horror stories edited by Dan Alatorre under Robbie Cheadle;
  • Three short stories in Death Among Us, an anthology of murder mystery stories, edited by Stephen Bentley under Robbie Cheadle;
  • Three short stories in #1 Amazon bestselling anthology, Nightmareland, a collection of horror stories edited by Dan Alatorre under Robbie Cheadle; and
  • Two short stories in Whispers of the Past, an anthology of paranormal stories, edited by Kaye Lynne Booth under Roberta Eaton Cheadle.

Goddess of the Wild Thing

And

The Unholy

Excerpt: The Unholy

As she ran forward, out of nowhere the two crows flew at her, scraping

the air near her face with their sharp talons. Fists clenched, she struck out at

one and grabbed at the other. They flew up, circled overhead, then dove, talons

flaring. Unmoving, Claire placed her hands by her side and held their gaze.

They fluttered above her head for a minute, then left. Claire turned and saw an

eagle soaring—a healer’s spirit manifestation. Medicine women said it came

only when needed, when danger lurked.

Frantically tugging away bush, bramble, and cacti, she uncovered the

mouth of the seventh cave and stepped in. She had the feeling somebody was

watching.

Her eyes adjusted and she made out the contour of something. Squinting,

she stooped and touched what seemed to be a circle of stones and charred, cold

logs. She stood up and pulled back. A bat flew at her. She waved it away.

She stopped, waited for her breathing to slow, and, stepping sideways,

touched the walls of the cave. They were damp and the stink of blood and guts

was everywhere. Using the hard surfaces as a guide, her fingertips suddenly

brushed through a hollow space roughly the size of a human body.

The Phoenix Project RRBC Tour

How was The Phoenix Project inspired by D.M. Cain’s love of geek culture?

How was The Phoenix Project inspired by my love of games, film and books?

Science fiction, fantasy and general geek culture have always been a huge part of my life. Growing up it was Star Wars, Marvel, anime, and a fixation with the Final Fantasy game series. As an adult, I am working my way through the great sci-fi and dystopian films and books of our time. Also, I am discovering an immense love of all things fantasy (especially those which include immersive world-building such as Game of Thrones).

When my debut novel, The Phoenix Project, was released I decided to delve into the themes and ideas within the book to see which of these geek culture influences made their mark upon my writing.

The geeky side to D.M. Cain

Yes, I’ll admit it – I am a huge geek! Star Wars, Doctor Who, RPGs, Manga – you name it, I love it.

In this post (stop 2 on the 4WillsPublishing blog tour) I talk about how those geeky interests of mine have influenced my writing, and what impact they have made upon The Phoenix Project.
