Fruit meringue roulade

Method

For the meringue

  • Preheat the oven to 160οC (320ο F) set to fan.
  • Butter a 23x33 cm baking pan and spread a piece of parchment paper over its surface, making sure that its edges are overhanging.
  • In a mixer’s bowl (which should be clean and completely dry) add the egg whites and beat them with the whisk attachment at high speed, until you get a meringue with soft peaks.
  • Once the egg whites are fluffy, lower the mixer’s speed and add the sugar in batches, the lemon zest, and the salt. Beat until the meringue is soft and smooth.
  • Spread the meringue evenly over the pan and bake it in the oven for 8 minutes, until lightly golden. 
  • Lower the oven’s temperature to 150οC (300ο F) and keep baking the meringue for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and carefully flip it over on a clean piece of parchment paper that is dusted with icing sugar in order to easily take the meringue out of the pan. 
  • Set the meringue on your kitchen counter to cool and remove the old parchment paper that the meringue was on while baking. 

For the filling

  • Cut one of the peaches into pieces, remove the pit, and add them to a measuring jug. 
  • Cut one of the apricots in half, remove the pit, and add it to the measuring jug. 
  • Beat the fruits with an immersion blender until mashed.
  • Add the heavy cream into a mixer’s bowl and beat it with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 2-3 minutes, until it starts to thicken. 
  • Lower the mixer’s speed and gradually add the sugar. 
  • Beat for another 2-3 minutes, until the whipped cream is firm.
  • Finely chop the pistachios.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and add the mashed fruits, the pistachios, the orange zest, optionally the food coloring paste, and fold gently with a silicone spatula until you get a uniform mixture. 
  • Set the filling aside until needed. 

To assemble

  • Finely chop the second peach and cut the apricot into 0.5-1 cm pieces. 
  • Spread the cream filling evenly over the whole surface of the meringue.
  • Sprinkle with the finely chopped fruits.
  • Carefully roll the meringue from its larger side, along with the parchment paper, to shape the roulade.
  • Seal the roulade well, twist the edges of the parchment paper like a candy, and put it in the freezer for 10-12 hours until the cream sets.
  • Take the roulade out of the freezer and carefully remove the parchment paper.
  • Serve with apricot slices and finely chopped pistachios.
