Biskuitrolle

Daggi’s first offering to cake club was the exciting Biskuitrolle, which was new to all and gone in minutes. This citrus delight recipe is not for the faint hearted, but if you want to impress the troops, read on and repeat. If you just want to remember the tasty, you can just skip to the photos…

Mandarin-quark-sponge-roll (Biskuitrolle)

For the sponge dough:
5 eggs, separate
125 g sugar
25 g vanilla sugar
 half peel of a lemon
150 g flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons rum
bit salt

For the stuffing:
2 tins mandarines
250 g quark (or cream cheese if you really have to)
200 mL cream
25 g vanilla sugar

80 g icing sugar
gelatine for 250 ml liquid
1 tablespoon rum (optional)

Topping:
icing sugar
OR Cream
OR stuffing and mandarins

How to do it

Stuffing first:
Decant the liquid of the mandarins (but keep it for later) and purée half of the mandarins.
Whip the cream.
Mix Quark with icing sugar and vanilla sugar, add all forms of mandarins and as well the cream gently with a spoon (fold in).
Add prepared gelatine, thus melted or dissolved in mandarin juice, and leave the stuffing for some hours in fridge.

Now the Sponge dough:

Separate the eggs and whisk stiff the egg white with the salt.
Mix yolks with rum, lemon, sugar and vanilla sugar vigorously until it gets foamy. Now add flour and baking powder and mix properly again.
Fold in the dough the egg white carefully, and give the dough on a baking paper in a baking tray with a rim.
Bake the dough for 10-15 minutes at 200 °C and put it upside down on a moistened and with icing sugar covered cloth. Remove the baking paper, roll the dough (far easier when it’s still warm) and leave it to cool.

Finally:
Unroll the dough, put most of the stuffing evenly on the dough and roll it again. Put the rest of the stuffing around the roll and decorate it as you like… this time I used mandarins and eggnog… ;0)

Enjoy!!!

How to do the quark? Easy as…

Heat 3 L of milk to 30 to 35 °C in a REALLY sterile pot (wash with boiling water several times) while stirring and add 9 tablespoons of buttermilk.
Close the pot with a cloth or a lid with tiny holes and leave it for 2 days without shaking on a warm place (I use our hot water boiler).
Then hang the quark out in a cloth over night in a cool place to get rid of the whey…
That’s it!
