Matcha Jelly Roll


Just in time for St. Patrick's Day...a matcha jelly roll!  Not only is it pretty, but it also tastes (gently) of matcha.  This was my first-ever attempt at a jelly roll, so it's a little messy, but I was pleased overall.



I used this recipe.  It worked pretty well.  I agree that you need to sift the flour three times!  Not only does it add air to the flour, but it also ensures your matcha is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Post-sift



I had a tear along the side of the roll, but it remained intact overall and worked out OK.  I also thought the cake was a little dry. Next time, I will wrap it in a moist towel (instead of leaving it in its parchment paper). If you have jelly roll tips, will you share them?  Thank you!

What a grand idea to incorporate matcha into a jelly roll -- so impressed it was your first effort!

I haven't had the best success at jelly rolls. I think your roll looks just wonderful and so colorful. I think the one I made last Christmas I wrapped in a damp paper towel and then plastic wrap.
