Lemon and Strawberry Roulade #GBBOBloggers2016
Ant has spent most of the day in the kitchen making Salasi’s lemon and strawberry roulade. It was totally worth all the hard work because it is delicious!
Lemon and strawberry roulade
The BBC Food website has recipes from the show so I’m not going to put the recipe on this post. Here is Selasi’s roulade recipe.
Ant got himself organised. When I was calorie counting, he saved all the black trays from the microwave meals I used to have. He loves them because they have so many uses.
He made the sponge in the morning as soon as Asda had delivered our groceries then left it to cool while we had lunch.
This afternoon he made the best lemon curd I’ve ever tasted! We have some leftover, Aiden especially will be very pleased, he loves lemon curd!
Just a note about pistachios, I forgot to take into account that they have to be shelled. Ant weighed them and he said it was about 50/50 shells and nuts. We had enough in the end but next time I’ll make sure I remember about the shells!
I have to admit, it didn’t all go swimmingly! The crack that appeared after it was rolled was very nicely covered by cream and the pistachios!
