抹茶ロールケーキ: Greentea roll cake, Coming back to something familiar!

I had some problem with baking lately, they didn't coming out as I expect, well, I'm in the bad baking week!

It's can come from the fact that I love to try new recipe, so with the recipe that I never made it before the result can be good or bad. Anyway, I still want to bake, haha, so when my sister said that she wanted to eat green tea roll,  I was happy to bake for her. I choose the recipe that I'm familiar with and add the green tea powder into it, ^^. The soft sponge cake is very easy to make, and it delicious every times, so I don't have to worry about anything. 
The filling is Italian meringue buttercream + green tea powder +Green Tea Liqueur = Green tea buttercream, something that I made many times before.
Finally it's something that I can make it and happy with the results, haha, eating it with a cup of hot tea and I hope it will put an end to my bad baking day too.
PS. For the buttercream, if you want you can use 3/4-1tsp green tea powder, but for me I serve it to my niece too, so the intense flavor is too much for her.

This roll looks very soft and fluffy. I am sure it tastes very good with the cream.

Hi, I'm miu. This is my first time to leave my comment. I'm a big fan of your blog. Everything looks soooo yummy and beautiful. I tried couple of your recipes. My favorite are mini coconuts cup cake and brown auger chestnuts pound cake. They are so good. I love your recipe because most of them are not too sweet. I enjoy your recipe very much, even though I need to convert quantity to US cooking measurement.(^^;;
Looking forward to see more yummy recipe!!

Hi, BabyMoon
If the cake is hard and break easily, it can come from over bake,try reducing the baking time.
