Matcha Cake Roll with Blueberry Jam and Cream

I am a little obsessed with cake roll right now. I saw this matcha one coming before I even finished rolling the latest one. And I see future hojicha, chocolate, coffee, and earl gray variations coming very very soon! I also want to try filling the rolls with fruits, custard, and milk jelly. And how about patterns and that hurricane roll.

Matcha Cake Roll
55ml milk
55ml oil
60g cake flour
12g matcha
4 yolk
4 white
55g sugar

Blueberry Jam
227g (1/2lb) blueberries
1/4 cup honey
1 Tbsp lemon juice

In a pot over medium heat, mash and bring to a boil. Continue to stir until mixture thickens. Cool and ready to use!

The only difference I made from the last one is to lower the cake flour by 5g and added 12g of matcha. The cake turned out fluffy and light with just the right matcha-ness coming through. Again, no cracks when rolling but the skin did get stuck on the parchment. I need to experiment baking at a lower temp for a longer period to see if this improves. But hey, if the skin rips off completely, I am all for that "towel" look too.

I folded some homemade blueberry jam into the whipped cream and spoon some directly on to give the roll that molten blueberry center.

Love how the blueberry and matcha flavors paired together. A satisfying treat for these WFH's afternoons.
