The hurricane or typhoon roll cake is baking up a storm at Instagram recently as many bakers have taken up the challenge to bake this pretty roll cake with hurricane-like swirls. Special thanks to Mary Ann San and Doris who have challenged me to bake this cake and this post is dedicated to both of you! 😘❤️💕

The first time I made this hurricane roll cake, the hurricane-like swirls didn't turned out as nice. Here's how it looks.

The bamboo charcoal is well known for its detoxification benefits, it's an ancient way to cleanse the system as it is the most absorbent material to get rid of toxins and impurities from the body.

Matcha Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Ingredients食材 :
5 large egg whites 大粒蛋白
150g caster sugar 细砂糖
350g Lurpak unsalted butter, room temperature 无盐牛油,室温
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt 海盐
1 tbsp Uji Matcha powder 于治抹茶粉

Methods 做法:
1.Whisk egg whites and sugar in a bowl over a pot of simmering water until sugar has completely dissolved & egg whites are hot.

1. 蛋白和糖放入钢盆,隔水放在温和沸腾的锅里,慢慢搅拌直到糖完全溶化,蛋白煮热。

2.Attach the bowl to the mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and begin to whip using medium high speed until the meringue is thick, glossy, and the bottom of the bowl no longer feels warm, about 8 minutes.

2. 趁热将混合物转移到搅拌器用中高速搅打约8分钟,直到硬性发泡,温度也降低到室温。

3.Switch over to paddle attachment, with mixer on low speed, add the butter cubes, one at a time, until incorporated. Continue beating until it has reached a silky smooth texture. 

3. 把速度降低到慢速,一点一点地加入切小的牛油块,一面加入一面确保已混合均匀再加入其余。 搅拌直到混合均匀,奶油霜光滑细腻。

Note: If buttercream curdles, keep mixing & it’ll come back to smooth. If too thin & runny, refrigerate 15 mins then continue mixing until it comes together.


4.Add in matcha powder & salt, continuing to beat on low speed until well combined.
4. 加入抹茶粉与海盐,用低速搅打至混合均匀。
