Wishing all Muslim readers Eid Mubarak. Hope you had a blessed & great time with your loved ones. Today, I'm sharing a recipe of an all-time favourite roll cake... so I realised.. I made Lucky Hoof Roll or Roll Tapak Kuda for my mum & she reported that it was so popular with the guests that it had to be replenished, again & again & again.....
Although I learnt to make this roll from Mdm Aini Salim many years ago, I think I've never made it for Hari Raya before. My sis, who is also my used-to-be hari raya co-baker, asked how come she's not aware of the existence of such cake! Well, the only reason I decided to make this was because I thought it would be easier than making the colourful African Mambo Roll which I normally made for my mum every year. I was right, it's easier to make this roll & is as popular, if not more popular than the regular roll cake. I'd probably be baking this from this year onwards!
Lucky Hoof Roll (Roll Tapak Kuda)
Recipe by Aini Salim.
10 egg yolk
5 egg white
225g caster sugar
30g ovalette (cake stabilizer)
*110g plain flour or top flour
*1/2 tsp baking powder (I used double-acting.)
135g butter (melted)
*10g milk powder or vanilla ice-cream powder
(* sifted together)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp chocolate emulco
Nutella chocolate spread OR hazelnut paste OR Nutella chocolate filling (recipe follows)
** I used Nutella chocolate filling.
- Prepare baking pans. Line & grease pans. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, combine egg yolk, egg white, sugar & ovalette & beat until thick & fluffy. Add in flour & continue beating until well mixed.
- Add in melted butter & vanilla & mix well.
- Scoop up 5 big spoons of batter into a bowl & mix it with the chocolate emulco. Then pour into baking pans (Refer below for dimensions of pans.). Spread batter evenly.
- Fill the rest of plain batter into a piping bag. Pipe batter onto chocolate layer. (I did not use piping bag, just spooned batter.)
- Bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 deg C. Once cooked, remove pan from oven. Then remove cake from pan & leave to cool.
- Once cooled, cut off the edges of the cake. Then cut into 2 or 3, depending on the size of the pans. Spread Nutella / hazelnut paste / chocolate filling on the cake & fold into two. Wrap rolled cakes with grease paper or cling wrap & chill cakes before serving.
1. two 10x10-inch pans - cut each pan of cake into 2, so total rolls yielded is 4, or
2. two 12x10-inch pans - cut each pan of cake into 3, so total rolls yielded is 6, or
3. four 9x9-inch pans - cut each pan of cake into 2, so total rolls yielded is 8.
*** I used option 1.
200g Mohrenglane / Tulip / Selbourne chocolate
1/2 cup (125g) butter (melted)
1 bottle (400g) Nutella
Melt chocolate using double boiler. Add in melted butter & Nutella & mix thoroughly. Set aside to cool & thicken it before spreading onto cakes. ( I placed the filling in the fridge for few minutes so that it will thicken, but don't leave it there too long or it will harden.)
