Rollo de merengue con frambuesas

Todos los años (hace unos 6 años) Louise de Months of Edible celebrations (un entretenido blog) nos invita a un picnic virtual, lo bueno es  que aunque estemos en invierno aquí yo igual puedo ir:)
Es lo más entretenido con deliciosas recetas y es un picnic internacional, es una de los eventos que encuentro más entretenidos.
Esta basado en un juego que dice, me invitaron a un picnic y llevo en mi caso Meringue roulade... porque es con las letras del abecedario.
Para este picnic hice un rollo de merengue con frambuesas que puede ser para postre o para la hora del té.


6 claras de huevo
temperatura ambiente
pizca de sal
2 cucharadas de maicena
2 tazas de azucar impalpable
1 cucharada de vinagre

2 tazas de crema batida
1/2 taza de azúcar flor
3 tazas de frambuesas frescas o congeladas


En un bol muy limpio batir las claras hasta que esten espumosas De a poco
añadir el azúcar por cucharadas siempre batiendo.
Batir bien hasta que el merengue esté firme y brillante luego agregar la maicena y el vinagre hasta incorporar bien.
Precalentar el horno a 160° (más bien bajo)
Forrar una bandeja rectangular con papel mantequilla ya enmantequillado y espolvorear con azucar en polvo.

Verter al molde la preparación de merengue y emparejar con una espátula la superficie (como un btazo de reina)
Llevar a horno a temperatura media-baja por unos 15 minutos o hasta que el merengue se dore ligeramente.

Una vez listo retirar del horno y dar vuelta sobre un papel de mantequilla espolvoreado con azucar en polvo.
Dejar enfriar un poco antes de despegar del papel.
Para despegar se puede humedecer el papel cuesta menos retirarlo.

Aparte en un bol batir la la crema hasta que este firme y agregar el azúcar. Rellenar el merengue con crema esparcir con cuidado y sobre esta frambuesas las que se quieran.
Reservar algunas para decorar.

Enrollar de a poco el merengue como un brazo de reina.
Cubrir con un poco de crema y algunas frambuesas.
Si se desea se puede espolvorear azucar en polvo al final
Refrigerar por lo menos una hora antes de partir.

4 eggs
5 tablespoons butter melted
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon butter or oil to
grease the skillet for the crepes
(I use a non stick skillet)


2 batches of pastry cream
recipe below
300 grams of raspberries to garnish
white chocolate shavings to garnish
the cake or powdered sugar


I think is better made the pastry cream ahead of time but it can be done either way.

Make the crepe batter by mixing all the ingredients in a blender.

 Chill the crepe batter at least for 1 hour. 
 Heat a nonsticl skillet over medium high heat.
Brush with a little bit of butter or oil using a paper towel to distribute
and even amount over the skillet.
When is hot pour in some crepe batter (a  little more than half of a 1/4 measuring cup for and 8 inch skillet) and distributing the batter evenly over the surface of the skillet.
Flip the crepe over when the edges are slightly dry about 1 min on the first side and 30 seconds in the second.
You have tosee because when the skillet is hot is more fast.
Repeat with all the batter putting the crepes on a round dinner plate and covering with aluminium foil while you are cooking the next crepe.
Cool the crepes. 

Assemble the cake by placing a crepe on a plate or cake stand .
Scoop out pastry cream and spread it out all over the surface of the crepe
Repeat with all the crepes and pastry cream.
Chill the cakes for at least an hour since the pastry cream needs to set.
Garnish with fresh raspberries or any other berries fruit chocolate shavings.
