Only in the Philippines, best pinoy bakery goodies. Back in the days, it is our favorite afternoon snack as a kid.
- 6 eggs
- 3/4 cup Softasilk flour
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla
For the filling
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup caster sugar, and some for dusting
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Separate and keep the egg whites from the yolk. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer.
- While continuing to beat the egg whites, slowly add the sugar in small batches.
- Ensure that each batch of sugar is well incorporated before adding the next.
- Beat the egg yolks and then mix them into the batter.
- Lower the speed of the electric mixer and add the flour. Beat until batter is light and fluffy.
- In a greased (or parchment lined) 13×13 pan, spread the batter evenly.
- Bake until the center of the cake is resilient to touch. About 5 minutes.
- Once done, cool for 5 minutes. Do not cool the pianono roll completely because the roll must still be warm to ensure pliability.
- Dust a clean and dry tea towel generously with caster sugar.
- Carefully flip the pianono upside down onto a clean and dry tea towel. This can be done by laying the dusted surface of the tea towel directly on top of the pianono in the pan, folding the edges of the tea towel under the pan, grabbing the sides of the pan, flipping it carefully onto a hard surface and removing the tin.
- Spread melted butter all over the cake, then sprinkle with caster sugar.
- Position the cake so that the longest side is facing towards you.
- Roll the cake away from you. Dust with caster sugar and serve warm.
