【Slow TV】Taiwanese Jiggly Sponge Cake 台灣古早味蛋糕

Filed under: Basics,Cakes & Cupcakes,Cooking Videos — SeaDragon @ 1:00 pm

In the past couple of years, something called Jiggly Cake has been making the rounds on social media. Actually it is not something new, someone has just come up with a catchy English name for the traditional sponge cake from Taiwan which in Chinese is 古早味蛋糕, meaning traditional flavoured cake. It is also known as Pillow Cake (枕頭蛋糕) because it is soft and fluffy! Now you might think that was it, but it has a history linking back to Japan and Portugal, because this cake is also known as Taiwanese Castella Cake.

This is the first time I have seen something like this, a very innovative and interesting way of creating patterns on a Swiss roll. So I’m keeping the link to the video here for references so I don’t have to look for it in the future…

【型男大主廚】Strawberry Mille-Crêpe Roll 夢幻草莓千層卷

Saw this video of a Japanese pastry chef, Masahiro Orita, making mille crêpe roll in 8 minutes! I think due to time constraint, he only made 2 crêpes, but at home if you want to make it, you can increase it to at least 5-6 crêpes per roll to really make it look like thousand-layer…

【用點心做點心】Japanese Cream Roll 生乳捲

The Japanese Cream Roll (生乳捲) or Hokkaido Cream Roll has been very popular in Asian countries for the past decade. The Hokkaido cream is reputed to be very fragrant and supposedly been pasteurized at low temperature, but it is very hard to buy outside of Japan, so just use whatever good pure cream you can get your hand on for the cream filling. I have made Cotton Sponge Roll which is very similar using the 60°C roux method. I am linking this video basically to show how to roll the chiffon roll (at about 18:50 minutes mark), this method only works with chiffon cake rolls, as they have higher moisture content, it will not work with the western-style Swiss rolls which are dryer in texture. However this video has very loud background music which is very annoying, LOL, so turn down the volume on your player…
