Hei sweet readers
Have you ever tasted a Budapest Roll?

Budapest Roll is a delicious meringue hazelnut roll, filled with whipped cream and mandarin oranges!
It is so delicious and so easy to make, and perfect for Easter.


  • 1 1/8 cup (250 g) egg whites
  • 2 cups (450 g) sugar
  • 200g ground hazelnuts or almonds
  • 75g Jell-O Pudding-Instant Vanilla, optional


  • 1 1/3 cup heavy cream, whipped
  • One can mandarin oranges


  •  2-3 oz. Dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 tablespoon Powdered sugar for dusting
  • 1-tablespoon Dark cocoa powder for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 320F / 160 C°
  • In a large bowl, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Slowly add the sugar while beating the egg whites on low speed.
  • In a medium bowl, blend the ground hazelnuts with the Jell-O Pudding-Instant Vanilla
  • With the use of a spatula, carefully fold in the hazelnuts / Jell-O Pudding-Instant Vanilla mixture with the egg whites.
  • Fill a piping bag fitted with a large round nozzle and pipe stripes from one side of the baking tray to the other side, pipe each stripe close to each other.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 min, or until set.
  • Let the meringue cool completely.
  • While meringue is cooling, drain the mandarin slices. Make sure they are dry before being putting it on the cake.
  • In a bowl, whip up the heavy cream until it thickens, if you love it sweetened add powdered sugar!
  • Flip the cake upside down onto a new sheet of parchment paper.
  • Carefully peel off the parchment paper spread the whipped cream over the bottom of the cake. Place the mandarin slices e on top of the cream.
  • Place the long side of the cake in front of you and start rolling it.
  • I find using the parchment paper and a silicon mat underneath helps the rolling ones you get started, hold on to the paper rather than the cake.
  • Once rolled up, make sure the edge of the roll is facing down.
  • Melt the chocolate and drizzle on top, when the chocolate is firm, dust the top with icing sugar and some dark cocoa powder

Enjoy, Love Manuela

    What can be used as an alternative? (Would dr.oetker vanilla puding be the same?)
