Line a swiss roll tin with parchment paper. Place the eggs and sugar together in the bowl of the MUM mixer with the whisk attached. Whisk on the highest speed for 5 minutes until thick and mousse like. Remove the bowl from the mixer.

Sift over the flour and cocoa and fold in with the grated orange rind. Spread in the tin. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn out onto parchment paper sprinkled with icing sugar. Cool a little, and then roll up from the long side, using the paper to help. Allow to cool completely.
