Chef Edward Hayden’s Rhubarb Meringue Roulade
By Irish Yogurts Clonakilty
- Line a large Swiss roll tray (13 x 9 ½ inches) with parchment paper ensuring that both the base and the sides are covered.
- Put the egg whites into a large, spotlessly clean, mixing bowl and beat rapidly until the mixture forms stiff peaks. You can use an electric hand whisk or a food mixer for this process. When the mixture has formed the peaks add in the sugar gradually, whisking thoroughly between each addition. When the correct consistency is achieved, the mixture should be glossy and stiff.
- Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with the flaked almonds.
- Bake at 150°C for 20 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool in the tin. To Assemble the Roulade
