Green Tea Cream Cheese Cake Roll ~抹茶乳酪蛋糕卷

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful Raya holiday. We are having two days Hari Raya holidays here. It is a great time to go visiting to our Muslim friends house or even take a good rest at home. 
For me, we are having a good family gathering. I baked this lovely Green Tea Cream Cheese Cake Roll for our afternoon treat and this simply delicious. If you love green tea, you must try this. 
This cake is moist, fluffy like souffle feel and the cream cheese filling is the switch up of the previous cream filling i made for the Earl Grey Tea Bread here. I had 95g left over cream filling from the previous bake so i added 50g cream cheese and 1 tablespoon of condensed milk, mixed well and spread onto the green tea cake sheet and sprinkle some sweetened Adzuki (sweetened red beans) and rolled up nicely. Chilled in fridge for 1 hour and it is good to slice and serve.
The original cake roll is decorated with pattern on the cake but i prefer to do it just plain. (i am not good at doing the decorated pattern that is why i prefer it to be plain ..lol)

Although is a naked roll but it is so tasty!
