Microwave Cooking: Deco Roll Cake

Have you heard of the Deco Roll? Its quite popular lately and there are quite a few books related to this topic this year.
Here’s one of them
deco
Usually the recipe states that one must use an oven but i have found that we are able to use the microwave too.
And i am here to share my finding and recipe with you!!!

First of all, we have to make the deco part!
What you will need
decoroll-3
3 tablespoons of flour
Food coloring – depends on the design you are doing
2 tablespoons of lukewarm water

Mix the coloring through evenly
decoroll-4

Line a pan with greaseproof paper [20cm X 20cm]
decoroll-5
DO NOT USE a metal pan as u are microwaving this!!
i assume you guys knew this but just as an added note, do not use aluminium foil since its metal and should not go in the microwave :)

Pipe the design on
decoroll-6
Okok so i didnt do an awesome job…XD

Microwave on medium 600W for 40seconds
decoroll-7
Leave aside to cool and work on the main cake batter

What you will need
decoroll-1
2 eggs
50g sugar
1 tsp baking powder
20g butter
50g flour
2 tablespoons of milk

Beat the eggs with sugar till fluffy
decoroll-2
Add baking powder + flour [sifted]
Fold in melted butter + milk

Pour in the lined pan and microwave on medium 600w for 3 mins
decoroll-8

Leave to cool
decoroll-9
Do not put the filling in whilst the cake is still hot. Your filling will “melt”

How to make the cream cheese filling [you can use cream or fruit or watever you like]
decoroll-10
1 block of cream cheese
30g of sugar

Mix through and coat the cake evenly
decoroll-11

Using the greaseproof paper, roll the ends to meet and you are done!
decoroll-12
Ok i admit the design wasnt fantastic. i will try harder next time!!
its super yummy and very fluffy! you really gotta try it!

In the meantime, check out the decoroll book Author’s Blog with plenty of pics/ideas : http://ameblo.jp/chottono-kufu/theme-10020222212.html

The possibilities are endless! Check out how the pro does it!
And a video which explains the steps [though they use the oven instead of the microwave]

Any questions? Please feel free to ask!
Hope you try this recipe. If you try it, please let me know!
Happy Wednesday!
XOXO Yumeko

p.s though the idea of deco roll cakes are not originally from me, the recipe to do it in the microwave is. i came up with it myself so please do not copy and repost elsewhere without my permission.

      sadly this recipe is for microwave only [i made it up XD]
      i dont think it will work for the oven as its kinda a steamed cake recipe.
      i dont own the books either so i dont know wat their recipe is [u can watch the vid to see that its very different from my recipe sadly T-T]

      i havent bought any of the books as we are energy saving in japan and i thought it would be a bit wasteful to use the oven [since u need to cook the deco part, then the main cake part] so i came up with the microwave recipe :)

      yup or if u want choco cream just use fresh cream + cocoa powder :)
      u dont have to use any glassware, just the baking paper will work [put it on a microwable plate]

      Hi! i am glad you tried it out and it worked out well!

      my microwave doesnt have a turntable in it so i dont think it matters if it turns or doesnt
      however if it didnt cook through, maybe u can try a “thinner” design, dont make the design too thick else it wont cook through

      lmk if you have other questions :D
