Banana Mascarpone Roll: Simply sweet!

I know that I like mascarpone cheese so much, and it turn out that I always have a box of it in my fridge ^ ^.
But how can you resist it? With soft and lightly sweet flavors, it's great with almost everything.
Mascarpone cheese is sweeter than cream cheese so it can be use with fruit without giving a tangy taste! And this time I found the recipe from the book name: ..................

The idea of cheese and banana always get my attention, haha, may be because both of them are my childhood favorites (ok, I love to eat almost everything, ^ ^, esp. the soft and baby food like).

This cake is very easy, chiffon cake is softer than simple sponge (and easier to make too). It's better to put the cake in the refrigerator before serving, it will be neater when you cut it.
And if you need some special taste, add a little bit of banana or chocolate liquor into the filling will brighten up this simple cake.

  2. you always take good and deliciously looking pictures.. what camera do you use ?

  3. Hi Pook,

    This cake looks yummy.
    What can I substitute the salad oil with? Also, can you please advise if the egg used is large egg?



  4. You can use any vegetable oil that you like, but just don't use the one with strong smell.
    And about the egg, large egg weight about 50g (without shell).

  5. Thanks Pook, for your fast reply.


  6. Your cake is very beautiful and seems also so delicious; I save the recipe and will test it very soon.

  7. I am a Vietnamese reader who loves to read your blog very much, and thank you very much for your sharing
    Recently there was one website (quite popular) in Vietnam always copy your images recipe and then change to their logo like this. This is their address

    And more

    This is total your images that has been changed. I already sent email to them ask them should not do like that. But there is no reply. I wonder do they ask you for permission or not? Because many of my friends who know and love your blog think that it is not good. All my friend and I when introduced your cake always remember to write down Source: dailydelicious

  8. about the copy of Vietnamese website they change your logo and insert their logo in your photo, Can you have ideas about this?
    Because this is big website and related to the youth, so I think they should not do like that, cheating and do wrong thing. I already send email to you via my email address,

  9. ็Hi, Ngoc Anh
    Thank you so much!
    I don't like people to do bad thing like this too.

  10. I made this cake today. Its really creamy,soft, and not too sweet ) I love it! Thank you for this great recipe!

  11. Hi, gosiaa99
    Your welcome!
    I'm glad that you like it.

  12. Hi,
    If I want to make a cocoa or chocolate roll cake, I can use this recipe?

    I really like your recipe, thanks for sharing.

  13. Hi
    You can use this recipe to make a chocolate roll cake, by change the amount of the flour.
    Using the 70g of cake flour plus 10g of the cocoa powder in the recipe.
    I hope you will like it.

  14. Thanks for your replying. I like your blog and your recipes.

  15. Hi,

    i love your blog. I wanted to make you banana mascarpone roll, but my cake ended up cracking as I was rolling it. Do you have any tips on what I can do to get a nice beautiful roll?

  16. If the cake is too dry (bake for too long) it will be crack too, if not from that reason, rolling the cake after baking with wet towel help too.

  17. Thanks so much for the reply. I'll try that next time. I've been making a few of your bread recipes in the meantime and they all came out fantastic. Everyone loved it. :)

  18. Hello, it's seems challenging to tear the baking sheet from the cake n gets torn..may I know what's wrong?
    Also am I right to use e liquid wipped cream? If yes what is e correct way to whip it up?

  19. Hi,
    Peeling the baking paper is not hard but you have to do it gently. And yes the whipping cream that I use is liquid one.
    You will need to chill it before whipping it. Pour it in a bowl and place it over ice bath, chilled whipping cream is easier to work with.

  20. Hi!
    This looks awesome! Wanna try it but I only have 8x8 inches pan ): should I still bake the same amount and pour into the pan?

  21. Hi, Sparkedillusion
    Yes you can bake it in 8" pan, then slice it instead of make a rolled cake.
    But the baking time will be 25-35 minutes, ^^.

  22. Thanks, this is sooo good. Your recipe inspired me to make a similar Chiffon-Mascarpone cake with pecan nuts, raspberries and maracuya, with a caramel topping. I loved it! The cake turns out real fluffy and soft. And it was so easy.

    I just substituted the water with passion-fruit juice and added a bit of passion-fruit juice to the filling. Also, I added some cream of tartar to the biscuit. Although, next time, I might change the ratio of cream vs. mascarpone by reducing the cream a bit. It was a touch too creamy for me and I love cheese.

    Congratulations on your great blog!
