Week 50: Pistachio Roulade with Cherries and White Chocolate

week 50- 1

Exactly a year ago I made my first cake of the 52 cakes challenge. With 50 cakes complete, I haven’t completed my challenge, but I plan on wrapping up the final two this week. Hold me to it!

week 50-2

For the 50th cake, I continued on with the swiss roll theme, except this time my cake was for New Year’s Eve and featured very different ingredients. The roulade recipe I got from Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh’s new book, “Sweet“, was full of white chocolate, pistachios and raspberries. It’s the middle of winter, so I used frozen cherries instead of raspberries and it turned out just fine!

Again this week, I had my boyfriend film me making the cake on my Instagram, and I even included a blooper ;). Note to self: always put the cooling rack on top of the cake before flipping out…

The cake was full of rich vanilla cream and juicy fruits, the perfect companion to a glass of bubbly for a midnight toast! The best part about week 50 was getting to try out my new Kitchenaid mixer which was gifted to me this Christmas. What better a way to take my new toy out for a spin?

Final thoughts on week 50 Pistachio Roulade with Cherries and White Chocolate:
