This Charcoal Matcha Chantilly Roll Cake is inspired by my visit to the O'sulloc cafe when I was in Seoul last month. You can click 'HERE' to follow Baking Taitai's Instagram if you are interested to see my Korea travel diary photos. :)

This is an overdue post and I finally found time to share this cake recipe. 

Last October, my dear friend Bee encouraged me to bake this Matcha Castella (also known as Kasutera) cake using the home brewed sweet glutinous rice wine that she has given me as the cake will be more flavorful. Indeed, the cake turned out so delicious that everyone commented that it tastes exactly like the ones I brought home from Korea some time back. I had bought two boxes of Green Tea Castella Cake from the Paris Baguette bakery at Seoul-Incheon International airport before boarding the plane home. We love the taste of the cake and I am so glad that I can replicate and bake it at home now. I tried baking the cake again using store bought Japanese mirin and the taste is just as good!


This sweet dessert wine is love at first taste, it is a cross between Sake and Makgeolli and I love drinking it!

(L - cheese flavor, R - pork floss flavor)
(左 -芝士口味,右 -肉松口味)

This Taiwanese Traditional Sponge Cake has been on my to-bake list for a long time. I had experimented and baked it in three flavors - original, cheese and pork floss flavor. My family's favorite is the pork floss flavor as we find it the most delicious as compared to the other two. 

I've wanted to do a blog recipe post on this earlier but my beloved grandmother passed away on 8 October 2017 and I was in deep deep grief being very close to her. Those who have followed me on Baking Taitai's Facebook Page and Instagram would have known about it. I've baked two of her favorite cakes in memory of her as what better way to remember our loved ones through their favorite food.

My 93 year-old granny was unwell recently and hospitalized for the past 2 weeks. Those who know me personally, will know that I am very close to her as she has looked after me since I was a baby and I chose to stay with her even when I grew up. She is like a good friend to me and I can talk to her about anything. We have a very close relationship as I stayed with her until I got married. 

It saddened me to see her so miserable as she doesn't like to stay in the hospital. She has kept her lips tightly closed and refused the oral medications and hospital food and had to be put on a drip. The doctor thought that she has difficulty in eating and swallowing and wanted to insert a feeding tube in her which we were against. 

To proof the doctor wrong that my granny can actually eat, I've baked this pandan chiffon cake using extra virgin coconut oil (see below for the health benefits) and at the same time, I experimented with some bread flour. The result was amazingly good and I was surprised that the texture is so fine, smooth and cottony! 

I brought this cake to the hospital and my granny finally opened her mouth to eat as I fed her. The doctor and nurses were really amazed as they saw her chewing the cake happily away! I have shared this cake with the doctors, nurses and patients and all gave big thumbs up and commented that the cake is so delicious!

Thank God that my granny is finally discharged from the hospital and I've baked this family's favourite Gula Melaka Yoga cotton cake, also using extra virgin coconut oil, to welcome her home and cheer her up. Am really happy to see her eating well again. :)

My beloved grandmother passed away peacefully on 8 October 2017. I missed her badly and feel sad that I no longer can bake for her. I have baked this cake today in memory of her, will be thinking of her always as she remains in my heart forever...
