Green tea Swiss roll (with red bean and Mascarpone cheese)

Green tea Swiss roll (with red bean and Mascarpone cheese)


After watched the DVD showing how to roll a nice swiss roll by master 孟老师 ( a blogger friend  MEL so kind sent me a 孟老师 DVD), I have more confidence now to make a swiss roll.













Green tea Swiss roll (with red bean and Mascarpone cheese)


This time, I changed to a new flavour to replace the normal whipped cream, I use Mascarpone cheese instead, and surprised that Mascarpone cheese perfectly matched with match flavour, simply YUMMY!!

I learnt these two tips before start to roll a sponge, check recipe below.

Green tea Swiss roll (with red bean and Mascarpone cheese)
(recipe source : basic sponge adapted from 孟老师 “美味蛋糕卷”)

* make one 11" x 14" (28cm x 36cm) Swiss roll

Ingredients
26g unsalted butter, melted
Green tea Swiss roll (with red bean and Mascarpone cheese)84g egg yolk (5 medium egg yolks)
26g caster sugar
10g green tea powder

126g egg white (4 medium egg whites)
80g caster sugar
47g cake flour, sifted

Filling
Red bean paste (I cook 100g red bean with water in pressure cooker for 20mins)
120g Mascarpone cheese
20g caster sugar

To make Swiss roll sponge
1. Whisk egg yolks and sugar over a pot of hot water till thicken and pale in color.
2. Add green tea powder into egg yolk mixture, stir well and set aside.
3. In another clean bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until foamy, gradually add in sugar and beat till glossy and soft peaks form.
4. Take one-third of egg whites mixture to mix with the egg yolk mixture using a hand whisk. Then fold in the remaining egg white using a spatula until well combined.
5. Gently fold the sifted flour (in 3 batches) into the batter. Take some batter and add into melted butter to incorporate and add back to the remaining batter and mix well.
6. Pour the batter into baking tray lined with baking paper. Spread evenly with a scraper. Gently knock the tray on tabletop to remove air bubbles trapped in the batter.
7. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for around 13mins.
8. When cake is done, remove from pan and place on a wire rack to cool.

To make Mascarpone cheese cream
1. Beat Mascarpone cheese and sugar till stiff peaks form, chill in the fridge for later use.

To assemble Swiss roll
1. Carefully turn the baked sponge cake onto a piece of baking/parchment paper.
2. Slowly peel off the attached baking/parchment paper from the cake.
3. Place a new piece of baking/parchment paper over the sponge. Invert the sponge again.
4. Slice out a small piece of sponge on a 45-degree angle at another end, so the end of sponge will neatly attached to the sponge at the end of rolling.
5. Make two slits across the breadth of the cake at the side nearest to you with a knife.
6. Spread evenly a layer of Mascarpone cheese cream over the entire sponge and followed by a layer of red bean paste.
7. With the shorter side/breadth facing you, roll the cake up tightly to form a Swiss roll. Wrap with cling wrap and chill in the fridge to allow the Swiss roll to set. Slice to serve.

I lOVE this green tea swiss roll. It looks amazing! I must try to get a copy of the 孟老师 DVD. Is this available in Australia or Malaysia? which book shops or online stores? I must say, green tea powder and red beans are my 2 most favourite dessert ingredients :-)

Hi this is very mouth-watering swiss roll! I used to buy it from breadtalk singapore but they have stop selling it few months ago. I would love to bake it soon. Can I know what type or brand of the green tea powder you arr using? The color looks so refreshing and summer.

Anonymous said...

Hi may i know how much water you used to cook the 100g red bean so that it could become red bean paste?

Thanks

Jenn

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Jenn, sorry, I did not record water amount..and take note that I was using a pressure cooker to cook this red bean. If you using normal pot, adjust water accordingly..

Nilu A said...

Goody Egg said...

Can I know the green tea powder brand you are using, thanks!
