The best Pavlova cake roll. Step by step recipe

  1. To prepare the Pavlova cake-roll, we need only squirrels. We separate them very carefully so as not to fall into the total mass of yolk, shell, protein. Therefore, I recommend that each protein is separated into a small separate bowl, and then transfused to the total protein mass.
  2. Beat the whites until a light white foam, then gradually add brown sugar, and then, little by little, icing sugar. You can replace everything with plain white sugar. But in this recipe, brown sugar gives caramel flavor to meringue (meringue), and powdered sugar makes it more ductile to make it easier to roll. Beat to persistent peaks.
  3. We spread the meringue on a baking sheet, covered with a simple parchment paper (pre-grease it with vegetable oil) and level it with a kitchen spatula (approximately 1-1.5 centimeters thick). For convenience, so that the paper lies flat and does not move, it can be glued to the pan using the same meringue. Just apply a few drops around the perimeter of the paper and attach to the baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle almond petals on top and send to the oven preheated to 200 degrees. At this temperature, bake meringue for 6-7 minutes, then reduce to 160 degrees and bake another 10 minutes. During this time, the top of the meringue is slightly browned, slightly dried up, cracks will go from above.
  5. Remove the finished cake immediately from the baking sheet along with parchment paper, cover it with a second sheet and turn it over. Carefully, slowly, we separate the parchment on which it was baked. And leave the cake to cool a little.
  6. To prepare the cream, we combine cold fat cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. And whisk everything until thick, beautiful peaks.
  7. We apply the cream to the cooled meringue and evenly distribute with a spatula over the entire surface.
  8. We wash the fresh berries, dry them and cut into small pieces, spread them all over the cream evenly, and roll everything up.
  9. We send the Pavlova cake roll to the refrigerator so that it cools a little and freezes.
  10. Before serving, we trim uneven edges.
  11. If desired, Pavlova cake roll can be poured with melted chocolate or sprinkled with chocolate chips and garnished with berries. Melt the chocolate in a water bath: to do this, heat a small pot of water, and on top of it we put a bowl with pieces of chocolate. We drown to the desired consistency, stirring occasionally.
