Watermelon Frozen Roll Cake 沁凉西瓜抹茶蛋糕卷 (中英食谱教程)


How time flies, this will be my last post for the Little Thumbs Up - Tea event which I am hosting this month and ending tonight. Many thanks to Zoe and Doreen, the organizers, who have once again given me the opportunity after hosting the LTU - Yogurt theme two months ago. Also like to thank my fellow blogger friends who have shared and link their recipes here


I hope you are not tired of seeing another Matcha post from me. I love anything Matcha and would gladly accept the title of "Matcha Queen" if it's bestowed upon! Today I am sharing this special Watermelon Frozen roll cake which I have made for my birthday yesterday. It was really challenging especially working on the raspberry and cream fillings on a hot day and taking photos at the same time, but thank God I made it successfully! It is such a refreshing and delicious cake and did satisfied my cravings for frozen desserts in this warm season! 

昨天是我的生日,给自己做了这创意冰心的蛋糕卷,用的是全天然材料无色素。在炎热的气候,做这款蛋糕还蛮有挑战性的。 我还得一面做,一面拍照,动作要非常快,因为眼看面前的冰陷急速溶化,弄得我好紧张呦!还好能成功做出来!除了对切蛋糕的技术还待有进步,我还是

Ingredients for matcha cake 抹茶蛋糕食材:

Caster sugar 细砂糖 20g
Sunflower oil 葵花籽油 30g (or any vegetable oil 或其他植物油)
Milk 鲜奶 30g
Cake flour 低筋面粉 50g  (I used premium Blue Jacket cake flour ,用优质水手牌蛋糕粉
Matcha powder 抹茶粉 5g


3 Egg white 蛋白 3颗
Lemon juice 柠檬汁 5g
Caster sugar 细砂糖 50g

Method for making matcha cake 抹茶蛋糕做法:
1. Beat the sugar with egg yolks until it dissolves. Add in the oil gradually, mix well before adding in the milk, beat till well combined.

2. Sift the cake flour and matcha powder together. Mix into the egg yolk mixture till no flour is seen. Set aside. 

3. Beat the egg white and lemon juice till bubble stage, add in the sugar gradually and beat till stiff peak. 
3。蛋白和柠檬汁搅打至呈现细泡沫,分次加入糖搅打至干性发泡, 即为蛋白霜。 

4. Add the meringue into the egg yolk batter 1/3 at a time, each time gently mixed well before adding the next. When done, pour the batter into the baking pan, smoothen the surface.  

5. Bang the baking pan a few times on the worktop to deflat big air bubbles. Put into a preheated oven at 170 degree Celcius top/bottom heat and bake for about 12 minutes. 

6. Remove the cake from the oven, transfer to a wire rack, peel open the sides of the baking paper to cool the cake. Put another piece of baking paper on it, flipped it over and peel off the top baking paper, let cool.   

Method of assembling the cake 组装做法:

1. After the rasberry cream is frozen hard, use the round cutter to cut out round shapes and stack it up before putting it back to the freezer to freeze it hard again., 

2. Measure the baking paper and cut out one piece of round shape for the base of the container and one piece of rectangular shape to go around the inner circumference of the container before piping in 1/3 plain whipped cream. 

3. Take out the frozen raspberry cream from the freezer and insert it into the container before piping more plain cream to fill up the whole container, put it back into the freezer。 

As I took photos, the frozen cream was melting fast, I had to be quick!

4. Remove the frozen filling from the container, trim both sides. 

5 Cut the matcha cake into two equal pieces along the shorter side. Take one piece and spread it with plain whipped cream. Place the frozen filling on it and roll it up. Put it into the freezer to freeze hard.  (I used the remaining plain whipped cream to spread on the other piece of matcha cake and roll it into a swiss roll.) 

6. Cut into pieces and decorate it with roasted black sesame seeds.
