Matcha Roll Cake with cream cheese filling
Last September, we published our simple Matcha Roll Cake recipe in this blog http://cookingwithjapanesegreentea.blogspot.com.es/2013/09/green-tea-roll-cake.html. We have been waiting for a perfect time to try it out a second time. Opportunity came when one of our customers asked us if we had any Matcha recipe with Mascarpone cream. We made tiramisu cream with fresh strawberry instead of simple whipped cream for our new rolle cake. The cake turn out great. We love all kinds of roll cake, but we find that this version is really delicious. Enjoy our Matcha Tiramisu Roll Cake with Strawberry, a perfect combination of Matcha Sponge Cake rolled with rich cream cheese filling with fresh strawberries!
