Roll cake and dowel. When cool, unroll cake and spread with filling; then re-roll.
FOR THE CHOCOLATE FILLING:
Grate chocolate and add to milk so that it melts while milk is scalding. Cream sugar and eggs until light. Add flour to this mixture, stirring gently. Add scalded milk gradually, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until it reaches boiling point, but do not let it boil. Add vanilla; strain and cool. Spread on cooled cake and re-roll. Dust roll with powdered sugar; slice, and serve.
