Picture for Ube Roll inspired by Steven Universe

INGREDIENTS

For the Cake

3 tbsp Powdered Ube

½ cup Water

4 Eggs

½ cup Granulated Sugar

40 grams Cake Flour

½ tsp Ube Flavoring

¼ tsp Violet Food Coloring

2 tbsp Vegetable Oil

For the Buttercream Icing

6 ½ ounces Egg Whites

1 cup Sugar

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

4 sticks Butter; softened

DIRECTIONS

1.

Preheat oven to 325°F.

2.

Add powdered ube to boiling water until a thick paste forms to get rehydrated ube. Set aside to cool and cover to keep moist.

3 tbsp Powdered Ube

½ cup Water

3.

In a stand mixer bowl at medium speed, add in egg whites and slowly mix in granulated sugar. Then add egg yolks, one at a time, until incorporated. Sift in cake flour on medium speed. Afterwards, combine 50 grams of rehydrated ube, ube flavoring, violet food coloring, and vegetable oil. Slowly mix for 30 seconds until just combined.

4 Eggs

½ cup Granulated Sugar

40 grams Cake Flour

½ tsp Ube Flavoring

¼ tsp Violet Food Coloring

2 tbsp Vegetable Oil

4.

Grease a quarter sheet pan, 9 by 13 inches, and place parchment paper on top. Spread out cake batter into a thin layer and tap on counter to remove any bubbles.

5.

Place in 325°F oven for 10-15 minutes until it springs back when touched.

6.

Place on cooling rack for about 20 minutes until completely cooled.

7.

On a stovetop place a large pot of water and bring to a simmer.

8.

In a new stand mixer bowl combine egg whites, sugar, and vanilla extract. Place bowl over the large pot of simmering water and stir until it reaches 160°F. Then place in a stand mixer and mix at high speed for 5 minutes until it triples in volume and cools off. Ideally until room temperature.

6 ½ ounces Egg Whites

1 cup Sugar

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

9.

Put stand mixer on medium speed and slowly add in softened sticks (room temperature) butter, half a stick at a time, and wait for it to be completely incorporated before adding the next half stick of butter.

4 sticks Butter; softened

10.

After that’s done, place on high speed for another minute until it is smooth and creamy.

11.

Check cake to see if it’s completely cooled and flip over onto parchment paper. Slowly remove parchment paper from bottom. Flip over once again so it is facing up like it did when it came out of the oven.

12.

Cover with buttercream icing.

For the Buttercream Icing

13.

Slowly roll it up lengthwise. Put in fridge for at least an hour for it to become firm.

14.

Take out, add 3 dollops of buttercream icing on top, and enjoy!
