Starbucks Japan’s Matcha Roll Cake Redefines Plant-Based Indulgence

Starbucks Coffee Japan continues to elevate its culinary experience by introducing a tantalizing addition to its plant-based series. Commencing on December 26, 2023, coffee enthusiasts can indulge in the all-new “Matcha Roll Cake with Rice Flour.”

Starbucks’ commitment to plant-based options ensures that these delectable offerings feature plant-based ingredients in its main ingredients without animal-derived components. However, it’s worth noting that these treats are not exclusively tailored for those strictly adhering to a vegan or vegetarian diet, as clarified by the company.

This latest addition to the plant-based lineup promises a unique culinary adventure. The matcha roll cake boasts a subtle bitterness from the matcha cream, perfectly complemented by a light and airy plant-based whipped cream, resulting in a delightfully fluffy confection.

What sets this roll cake apart is the meticulous crafting of the batter, utilizing rice flour to achieve a soft and chewy texture that tantalizes the taste buds.

The secret behind the plant-based whipped cream lies in the blend of coconut milk, oat milk powder, and soy milk, ensuring a taste that is both light and delightful. With simplicity at its core, this roll cake is not just a treat for the palate but a visual delight, making it easy to savor each mouthful.
