Say “aloha!” to desserts inspired by Hawaii, a tropical island only far from Singapore in terms of geography – culturally, its vibrant mix of different peoples has much in common with our little red dot, especially when it comes to food. Learn how to bake with a Hawaiian accent, with Christopher’s recipes for luscious cake rolls. 

1. Chocolate Dobash Roll with Dark-Roasted Macadamias

A classic Hawaiian chocolate dobash cake stacks chiffon cake layers with a sumptuously creamy dark chocolate frosting. Chris’s take transforms the original into a roll cake, complementing bittersweet cacao with deeply tanned and fragrant slow-roasted macadamias.

2. Banana & Coconut Dobash Roll

Inspired by both dobash cakes and kueh pisang, both the soft cake and rich filling of this roll are infused with fresh bananas and coconut milk, a flavour match surely made in paradise! A sweet-salty dusting of finely ground toasted coconut and peanuts adds an aromatic edge.

3. Taro & Purple Sweet Potato Cake Roll

Taro is a favourite Hawaiian ingredient, used in many sweet and savoury recipes: purple sweet potatoes are beloved of Hawaii’s Okinawan community. Here, purple sweet potato sponge is rolled up around taro paste - a lighter version of ‘orh nee’ - and taro whipped cream for a vivid combination of flavours, textures and colours.
