After a long hiatus, I’m finally back.

Most of my recent culinary and baking experiments have been Japanese.

I’m a massive fan of Japanese cakes and sweets, and I can’t get enough of them.

It’s really stunning in every way.

The Matcha Roll is one of my favorites, and it’s always on my list of things to eat when I visit Japan.

This recipe for Matcha Rolls is the result of many attempts and failures.

Moreover, I wanted to share it with Rasa Malaysia’s readers.

A matcha roll is a sponge cake folded with fresh cream and cooked adzuki beans stuffed with matcha powder (red beans).

Because it’s so moist and tender, the cake disappears as soon as you slice it to serve it.
