Bake Off: Dolli Irigoyen’s meringue roll recipe

This Tuesday, Bake Off 2021 had its second program and the first technical challenge for the 14 contestants of this new season. After a debut with a cake “free“, the participants had to demonstrate their skills to make a recipe from one of the jurors: Dolli irigoyen.

After the amateur pastry chefs entered the tent, Paula Chaves he announced that this time they had to replicate the chef’s classic meringue and cream roll. To do it, they had the possibility of seeing one already prepared and also, they had the step by step at all times.

To add a difficulty to the original dessert, they decided to add a crunchy meringue base and a decoration with an Italian meringue, in addition to adding strawberries to the filling that can release juice and spoil the filling.

Finally, after evaluating all the preparations, Damian Betular, Pamela Villar and Dolli Irigoyen, decided to award Hernán, the same contestant who had won on Monday with his cake. For this reason, he already added ten extra minutes for Sunday’s elimination competition.
