INSTRUCTIONS

Matcha Cake Roulade:
  • Beat the egg yolks, eggs and the 365g portion of sugar in an electric mixer.
  • Beat the whites and make a meringue with the 120g of sugar and green tea powder.
  • Mix the stiffened whites with the other mixture and finally add the sifted flour.
  • Weigh out sheets of cake: Each one should be 550g.
  • Bake at 430°F (220°C) for 6-7 minutes in a fan-assisted oven.

  *Chef’s note: The matcha tea is optional – You can replace it with cocoa. If you decide on this option, you will need to make a cocoa syrup.

 

Matcha Syrup:
  • Boil all the ingredients together then store in the fridge.
  
Morello Cherry Confit:
  • Heat the Morello cherries.
  • Once the temperature has reached 95°F to 115°F (35°C to 45°C), add the sugar and pectin mixture.
  • Bring to the boil then store in the fridge.
  • Beat before use, to create a smoother confit.

 

Whipped ALPACO Ganache:
  • Bring 320g of heavy cream, and honey to the boil.
  • Slowly pour the boiling mixture over the melted ALPACO 66% COUVERTURE and mix in an immersion blender to create the perfect emulsion, then pour in the larger portion of cream. Blend again.
  • Store in the fridge overnight, then whip until firm.

ASSEMBLY & FINISHING

  • Cut the biscuit into 56x14cm rectangles.
  • Steep each piece of cake in 100g of syrup. Spread out 140g of Morello cherry confit per cake.
  • Spread out 200g of whipped Alpaco ganache per cake then use a spatula to smooth the surface.
  • Roll up as you would a traditional yule log. Squeeze the yule log so that it cuts into even sizes.
  • Place in a mini U-shaped mold with the exposed edge of the yule log cake facing out of the mold. Push down lightly so that the log has a flat side then freeze.
  • Use a basket weave nozzle and pipe 150g of the whipped green tea ganache onto the log.
  • Cut into mini yule logs of approx. 7.5cm.
  • Decorate with a few candied Morello cherries.
