Công thức đây

Matcha and Azuki Cake Roll
For the cake (génoise):
- 4 eggs, separated
- 40 grams (2 rounded tablespoons) almond butter (substitute 30 grams / 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled)
- 80 grams (6 tablespoons) sugar
- 75 grams (2 2/3 ounces or 2/3 cup) flour
- 25 grams (3 tablespoons) corn starch
- 6 grams (1 tablespoon) matcha (finely powdered green tea)
- a good pinch of salt
For the filling:
- 280 grams (10 ounces) anko (sweetened azuki bean paste; preferably tsubuan, which is a little chunky); if unavailable, substitute sweetened chestnut purée (crème de marron)
- 80 grams (1/3 cup) plain Greek-style yogurt or fromage blanc or crème fraîche
For the topping: (optional)
- confectioner's sugar
- matcha (green tea powder)
Prepare the cake. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) and line a 35-by-25-cm (14-by-10-inch) jelly roll pan with parchment paper; I used my rimmed silicone mat, which of course doesn't need lining. (Alternatively, line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and draw a 35-by-25-cm [14-by-10-inch] rectangle on it lightly in pencil; you'll then spread the cake batter onto the paper into a rectangular shape, using the drawn-on shape as a guide.)
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks with the almond butter and sugar. Beat well with a wooden spoon. In another bowl, sift together the flour, corn starch, and matcha. Stir the flour mixture into the egg yolk mixture until just blended, without overmixing.
Place the egg whites and the pinch of salt in a clean, grease-free mixing bowl, and whisk until stiff. Stir one third of the egg whites into the batter, then fold in the rest with a spatula, lifting the mixture to keep as much air as possible in the egg whites.
Pour the batter onto the prepared pan or sheet, making sure it reaches the corners, and smooth out the surface gently with the spatula. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, keeping a close eye on it, until just set; it should not color.
While the cake is baking, prepare the filling: combine the anko and yogurt in a bowl, and stir well. Set aside.
Once the cake is baked, you have to work quickly while the cake is still warm, otherwise it will be too stiff to roll. Slide the parchment paper and cake on a cold baking sheet or a tray. Using a sharp knife, trim the edges of the cake if necessary to get a neat rectangle, or if the edges have gotten a bit crisp in the oven.
Cover with a clean dishtowel (or a fresh sheet of parchment paper, which you can reuse several times) and flip cautiously onto your work surface, so that one of the short edges is close to you. Remove the cold baking sheet or tray and carefully peel off the sheet of parchment paper on which the cake baked (or, in my case, the silicone mat). The cake will now be upside-down, the spongiest side facing the ceiling.

Spread the filling onto the cake, leaving a margin all around. Roll the cake tightly onto itself, starting from the edge closest to you. It will feel a little awkward at first -- you can use the dishtowel to help your grip -- but will get easier after the first few inches. Wrap the rolled cake tightly in the dishtowel and place it seam side down in the fridge to set for a few hours or overnight.
