Beef Floss Roll Cake
I just scroll my blog and just realize that it's almost a year since the first time I started a blog. I can't believe that I'am still here with the blog, still trying and struggle to writes and to be a good storyteller even after almost a year. Even though I'am so proud of myself considering I'm not speak a lot nor as expressive as others. But this blog is my media to express my passion with food, wander and photography. And I really happy almost a year ago I decided to start this blog. Hopefully will be better and more to come years later. Maybe now I will start to think about what I will make for tasty wanderer first birthday, I feel like I want to celebrate it with a special post. We'll see.
This roll cake is savory roll cake. Actually I'm not too fond with rich sweet and full of cream cakes, I like light and not too sweet cake and Pandan chiffon cake is always favorite of mine. This roll cake is inspired by beef floss bread that I always buy at Bakery's. I love the savory taste from the beef floss. So I've come with an idea about making this always sweet and cream roll cake to the savory version. And I love it, I mean I really love it!! Imagine a moist thin layer of cake with beef floss paired with mayonnaise and a hint of spicy from chili on top, it was delicious.
