Blueberry Roulade

For a change I want to do a blueberry roulade as it is Blueberry season and they are really sweet and juicey, not like the ones they are for sale in the supermakets during the year

To do a biscuit for a roulade is actually very simple, it is just very important that everything is beaten properly so that the batter is quite firm and not runny
So here is the recipe
6 each Egg yolks
6 each Egg whites
100 g Sugar
1 each Lemon Peel
0.5 each Vanilla bean
125 g Flour
25 g Butter, melted

Whisk the egg yolks with half the sugar, lemon peel and vanilla till thick and creamy. Beat the egg white together with the rest of the sugar till firm peaks. Add half the flour to the egg yolks, then add half the egg white to it, always mixing carefully so not to loose any of the lightness. Then add the rest of the flour and the rest of the egg whites. Just before baking add the melted butter.

Spread the batter about 5 to 7 mm thick on a non stick paper, make sure it is nice and square. The batter should be nice and firm, so is not running away.

Bake in the pre heated oven at 220 o C quickly, take off the baking tray and cover with a damp cloth to keep the biscuit nice and soft.

500 g Blueberries
50 g Sugar
250 g Cream cheese
250 g Cream
3 leaves Gelatine

Warm the blueberries up with the sugar, then add the soaked gelatin
Mix the blueberries with the cream cheese.
Then add the whipped cream.
Spread the filling on the roulade biscuit, then roll with the cloth underneath, nice and firm.
Keep in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.

It is a really easy recipe and not very time consuming, worth a try. Of course the filling can be anything, from chocolate to fruit, whatever one likes to have.
