Cutie Strawberry Rolls

Few days ago, my aunt (舅母) sent me a link bout this cute strawberry roll, once I opened it, my reaction was...WAH!!! SO CUTE!! While I was planning to try it out, my aunt and my youngest sis have posted theirs..haha! Their work was so fine and nice..:) So without any delay, I did mine this morning!
This was from a blogger in Taiwan, and of course everything was written in Mandarin. You can have a look at hers here.

Not much changes have been made here, I used some pandan paste for the strawberries leaves instead..;p And why is my rolls got holes ha? Maybe I've folded it too much..:(

See, this is how it looks after cute isn't it...haha! Anyway I think I should post the recipe here which I'll translate it to English for my own reference.
Egg yolk Batter:
6 egg yolks
20g sugar
60g fresh milk
45g cornoil (original called for salad oil)
100g cake flour (original called for low gluten flour)
15g cornflour
Egg Whites:
6 egg whites (original called for 5.5 egg whites)
70g sugar
Ingredients for little strawberries:
20g egg whites
10g sugar
few drops strawberry paste or red colouring
** some cocoa powder diluted in some water (brown color)
** some pandan paste (green color~leaves)
Some whipped cream and some halved fresh strawberries.
~ First, preheat the oven at 180'C. Then lightly whisk the egg yolks together with 20g sugar, then add in fresh milk and coinoil and mix well.
~ Add in cake flour and cornflour and stir well. Set aside.
~ Spoon out 30g egg yolk batter and mix in the red colouring or strawberry paste. Mix well.
~ Whisk the egg whites and sugar (ingredients for little strawberries) till half soft peak form and add in the prepared 30g egg yolk batter. Stir well.
~ Spoon the pink batter into a piping bag with tip #3. Pipe some little triangles onto lined tray (10"x14").
~ Bake at 180'C for 1 minute then set aside.
~ Whisk the 6 egg whites together with the 70g sugar until peak form.
~ Fold into the remaining egg yolk batter. Then pour batter over the half-baked strawberries.
~ Flatten the top with a spatula and bake at 175'-180'C for 12-13 minutes.
~ Transfer on to wire rack to cool completely. Then slice into half.
~ Once completely cooled, spread the whipped cream and place some strawberries on the cream and roll up.
~ Once the rolls are stable, colour the strawberries with prepared cocoa powder and pandan paste.

There'll be 2 rolls all together, and I did one with a cute Hello Kitty...does it look okay?....LOL
Luckily when I asked my daughter what can she see here, she did answer Hello Kitty...haha!

Texture is super soft. Maybe I'll try it with some other fruits. Kiwi? Orange? Banana? Or maybe durian...;p

  23. Dear Reese..

    Your swiss roll looks lovely. I've tried your recipe this evening. Mine didn't turn out as lovely as yours but enough to make me happy.. at least I've answered my own challenge. I hope you won't mind me re-posting your recipe in my blog for my future reference ya. Can't wait to post it in my blog, probably tomorrow morning. Thank you so much Reese for sharing. Take care!

  24. MamaFami,
    No worries, go ahead and post it! I'm so glad that you like this roll and happy to hear that you've tried...:) Happy baking!!

  25. Hi Reese,
    Thanks for sharing this recipe :) I made this today and the result is good except that my sponge cake got "wrinkle" after baking(the side with paper...and when I was peeling off the baking paper, its rather sticky. Therefore, the outlook of my swissroll is not as smooth as yours. Did u grease the baking paper before piping the strawberries on it? I also noticed yours do not have creases, any tips on this?

    Many thanks,

  26. Hi cyndi,
    I used a non-stick parchment paper and I do not grease the paper. Greasing the paper may cause the swissroll go dense and may not rise if too oily.
    Did u remove the paper once took out from the oven? The paper have to be remove once the roll has been taken out from the oven (while it's still hot) . Then only leave to cool.
    Hope you can get the right texture next time!

  27. Hi ReeseKitchen,
    Can I use all purpose flour/plain flour instead of cake flour? Thanks!

  28. Hi VeryBubbly,
    Yes, you may but the texture will not be as soft as the cake flour. Actually originally it calls for low gluten flour (pao flour).

  29. this is so cute, will be a hit for kids birthday. thanks for sharing!
