Episode 2: On a Roll
Welcome back to Baking and Boozing!
I am so excited to present today’s dessert and cocktail pairing: Pistachio Roulade with a Raspberry Vodka Lemonade. These flavors are light and refreshing and are the perfect entrance into spring. Try them out as soon as you can and let me know what you think!
Pistachio Roulade Ingredients
70g pistachio flour
60g AP flour
5g vanilla extract
2 tbsp. warm water
green gel food coloring
1-2 tsp. powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375*F.
Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper
Whip your eggs and sugar with until light and fluffy
Add the water, food coloring, and vanilla extract. Whisk to incorporate. Will be VERY liquid.
Fold in your sifted flour in 3 or 4 stages.
Pour the mixture into jelly roll pan and bake for about 10 mins, or until done.
Remove cake from the oven when the edges have a slight golden brown hue.
Slide a paring knife around the edges to ensure release. Sift enough powdered sugar to cover the top and cover with a clean towel.
Flip over and release from pan. Roll and let cool in the towel (parchment paper still on). See video for these techniques.
Make cream cheese frosting. Slice raspberries.
When cool, unroll cake, and peel off parchment. Spread frosting and scatter raspberries. Reroll and set in refrigerator.
Decorate as needed with extra raspberries and frosting.
