樱花蛋糕卷 ~ Sakura Swiss Roll
(Recipe adapted & modify from 孟老师的美味蛋糕卷) 

Swiss roll:

80g egg yolks
20g castor sugar
40g vegetable oil
40g milk
80g plain flour

180g egg whites
80g castor sugar

(C) Sakura  

1.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, castor sugar, vegetable oil & milk until combined. Sift in flour & mix until smooth & well combined.

2. In another bowl, beat eggs whites until soft peaks. Add sugar slowly & continue beating until egg whites are nearly stiff.

3. Fold 1/3 of egg whites mixture into egg yolk mixture. Add the rest of the egg whites & fold gently to obtain a smooth batter.

Placed some Sakura into a tray lined with parchment paper. Pour batter in & bake @ 180 deg C for 15mins.

Cream fillings:
80g butter

40g rose water (2.5 tsp rose extract + 40ml hot water) 
30g icing sugar

1. Whisk icing sugar & butter in a bowl. Add in rose water & whisk till combined.

Rose extract - bought during my last HK trip

P/S: Thanks Alan (from travellingfoodies) for the Sakura  *^_^*
