After a long hiatus, my baking contributor Siew Loon is finally back in action. She baked us a nice Match Roll, or Green Tea Swiss Roll. Green Tea is widely used in Japanese cuisine, especially in desserts and baking. Get a cup of tea or coffee, sit back, and enjoy!

I am finally back after a very long break. Lately, I have been spending quite a lot of my time experimenting with Japanese cooking and baking. I love Japanese pastries and cakes and it is simply irresistible. It is just so perfect and delicate. One of my favorites is the Matcha Roll and it is always on my TO EAT list whenever I visit Japan.
After some trial and error, I finally get the Matcha Roll recipe that I love. And I wanted to share it with the readers on Rasa Malaysia. Matcha roll is actually a combination of cottony soft sponge cake rolled with fresh cream and cooked adzuki beans (red beans). It is so soft and moist that the cake is gone the very moment you slice it for serving.
