Open sesame...

It's been some time since i did a swiss roll, so i tot why not this weekends. This is a black sesame swiss roll, using grounded sesame seeds. i was very curious as to how sesame seeds will taste in a cake... and now i know.... frankly, it tasted very different from my imagination. a tat too dry, but it has a nice sesame seed fragrance. hmm.. maybe it's abit overbaked and i shd've slapped on a thick layer of buttercream! Here's the recipe:

What you need
  • 5 eggs
  • 50gm corn oil (i used canola oil)
  • 80gm milk
  • 85gm castor sugar
  • 76gm cake flour
  • 17gm corn flour
  • 20gm grounded sesame seeds
  • 2gm baking powder (i used 1/2 tsp)

What you do
  1. Add corn oil to milk and warm them up (abt 20 seconds in a microwave oven).
  2. Sift the cake flour, corn flour and grounded sesame seeds tog. set aside.
  3. Beat the eggs till white and mousse-like.Fold in the sifted flours. Combine it well.
  4. Fold in the milk and oil to the batter. Mix well.
  5. Pour batter into prepared tin and bake at 180C for abt 20mins.
  6. When cooled, spread on butter cream and roll up.
