Something that always raises our spirit around here by several degrees is CAKE! We’ll use any occasion or excuse.
This morning, Jane surprised us all by bringing in her amazing, homemade Strawberry Roll – pretty much the best cake ever! The occasion? The fact that it’s finally thawing outside.
Later in the day, we actually had even more to celebrate as our Facebook page reached 12,000 Likes! We’re kind of proud of that…
We’ve shared the recipe before, but here it is one more time:
What you need:
8 oz (200g) Marzipan
8 oz (200g) Egg Whites
12 oz (300g) Sugar
4 oz (100g) Hazel Nut flakes
4 1/4 C (l ltr.) Whipping Cream
20 oz (500g) Strawberries
What you do:
Knead the marzipan with 50 g egg whites. Beat 150 g egg whites until they are stiff. Carefully fold the sugar into the egg whites. Fold in the marzipan. Spread the dough out onto a piece of baking paper measuring 33 x 40 cm. Sprinkle hazel nut flakes on top. Bake for about 15 minutes at 180°C. When the bottom has cooled off completely, flip it over onto a new sheet of baking paper so that the nuts are facing down. Spread the whipped cream and strawberries thickly on the bottom. Use baking paper to roll the roulade. Decorate the tray with strawberries before serving.
