Japanese Honey Swiss Roll(日本小山卷)

近来都是天天外食。唯有周末才有时间在厨房里快乐的烘焙和烹饪。

之前在Helena's Kitchen看到这个万人迷 ~ 小山卷时,就对它一见钟情。但是一想到它是外卷法,我又Hold住了。近期看到网上的姐妹一个个都成功征服“小山”,也激发我尝试的勇气!
第一次做外卷法,从开始到结束, 都是战战惊惊。好担心那层“外衣”破裂或颜色烘得不均匀。 幸好一切还顺利, 没被我搞到破破烂烂的,哈哈!
这个日本大师小山进的经典食谱,不但有外表优雅迷人,蛋糕柔软有弹性,令人欲罢不能!

Due to my busy work schedule, eating outside is become a norm. My happy baking and cooking time is only available on weekend.
Japanese Honey Swiss Roll (小山卷) is the best seller at Japan. It can sell up to 2,000 pieces a day and you need to make a pre-order one month in advance. Can't imagine right?! This swiss roll is soft, spongy and super delicious, have you try it ?Don't miss it  :)
