Biskuitrolle with Raspberry Cream {5 Ingredient German Dessert}

You’re in a time crunch (aren’t we all these days)! You promised to bring a dish to that thing you’re running late for. You have flour, sugar, eggs. Yes, yes yes? Maybe you also have whipping cream and some berries? Hooray! You’re about to impress your friends with this easy and oh-so-tasty, German dessert. The dough is light and airy and melts in your mouth along with the whip cream and raspberries. An elegant and delicious dish for very little effort is my kind of dish!

Shout-out to Dolly and her friends for laying these pretty eggs for me.

[print-me target=”.print-recipe8″ title=”Print Recipe”]

Ingredients for Pastry Roll

5 fresh eggs  (separated)

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup flour

 

Ingredients for Filling

1/2 pint whipping cream

1 heaping tablespoon of sugar

1 1/2 cup of summertime fruit  (berries, sliced peaches, any fruit your heart desires)

 

What you’ll need:

baking sheet with a small rim

parchment paper

clean dish towel

1 tablespoon of sugar to sprinkle on the dish towel

4 tablespoons of confectionary sugar to dust the finished dessert

 

Directions

Line your baking sheet with the parchment paper. Preheat oven to 345F and place rack near top shelf. Lay out a clean dish towel and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar.

Beat the egg whites to foam and then slowly add the sugar. This make a meringue. Continue beating until stable peaks form. Sift the flower on top. Break the egg yolk with a fork and drizzle over the snowy peaks. Gently fold the egg yolks and flour into the egg white meringue using a large wire whisk.  It is ok if the mixture is not completely homogenous, it could even be slightly lumpy. It’s important is to keep it light.

Evenly spread the batter onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake near top shelf for about 11 minutes. It’s ready when it is light golden brown and feels spongy to the touch. Turn baked pastry over onto dish towel and peel off the parchment paper while hot. Roll pastry and dish towel together into a roll, set aside to cool.

Whip whipping cream and when almost firm, add a heaping tablespoon of sugar. Mash some of the fruit and leave some whole for added prettiness. Mix fruit into whipped cream.

When cool, unroll the pastry from the dish towel. Spread cream/fruit mixture onto the pastry, leaving some room around the outer edges. Roll back up. Dust with confectionary sugar.

 

Notes:

Take this dessert over the top by adding 2 tablespoons of triple sec to the whipping cream as you beat it.

    I love recipes like this. So easy, so quick, and so yummy looking. The only thing is, do you think it would work with honey instead of sugar in the pastry roll? It might be more dense and that’s ok, but I don’t know if it would fall apart. Thank you! Great pictures by the way. This is a first time and I am loving it.

      Thanks for your interest, May! The egg whites are the supporting structure in the recipe and the sugar stabilizes the matter. If you use honey instead of sugar you will weigh down the batter, as you said. I would suggest that you use 6 egg whites instead of 5. And incorporate the honey along with the egg yolk, gently and lightly folding it under. I haven’t tried it but it’s a great idea! Please let me know how it turns out. I will share a similar recipe with nuts in a pastry later this year and I’m excited to try it with honey. Stay tuned!

    I made this with fresh strawberries… and holy cow! So good. It was easy enough that I threw it together after dinner on a week night and everyone got to enjoy it. Sadly it’s already been eaten, I’ll have to make it again! Maybe with peaches next time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
