2 Japanese Recipe Dessert

Sakura Cherry Blossom Swiss Roll

Ingredients

Sponge:

  • 30g flour
  • 30g rice flour,
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 60g sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 20ml milk
  • 25g sakura-an cherry blossom bean paste
  • red food colouring

Syrup:

  •  1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp hot water

Cream Filling:

  • 80ml whipping cream
  • 20ml condensed milk
  • 80g sakura-an cherry blossom bean paste (optional)

Method:

  • Whip the egg whites until you get soft peaks. Next, add 30 gm of sugar, and whip again to get a meringue.
  • Now combine the egg yolks and 30g of sugar. Again, whisk until you get a slightly yellowish hue. This should take around 3 minutes.
  • Add vegetable oil, sakura-an, milk, and food coloring into the yolk mixture and mix well. You should get a light-medium pink color.
  • Then add flour and rice flour.
  • Mix the egg yolk mixture with the meringue and whisk until it is thoroughly combined. Do not over mix, as this will not make the sponge fluffy and light.
  • Line a parchment paper baking sheet and pour the batter on it. Spread evenly.
  • Next, bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius. Allow cooling when done.
  • Start making the syrup by mixing sugar and hot water. Brush this syrup on the sponge.
  • Beat the whipping cream until you get soft peaks. Add the condensed milk and continue beating until you get stiff peaks. Take this mixture and spread it on the sponge. Leave a small section at the free end of the cream from where you will seal the roll.
  • You can add more cherry flavor to your roll, or some sakura-an on top of the cream for additional taste.
  • Begin from the edge and start rolling the sponge just like a swill roll. Remove the parchment paper as you do so, and then press gently once done. Again wrap the roll in the parchment paper to maintain the shape.
  • Chill for an hour before serving.
