I've been going to make this deliciously bright and tasty carrot roll for a long time. And now the day has come. The dessert carrot roll is simply incredibly tender and very beautiful. I couldn't believe that it would be so easy to prepare and so delicious. This dessert can safely claim as a great roll for a festive sweet table! And if you have never tried to cook such a product, then I definitely recommend it! A spicy delicacy will appeal to many, especially those with a sweet tooth and small children.

Having tried this recipe, starting from its base, you can use any other products instead of carrots. For example, pumpkin or apple shavings, grated zucchini or pear are suitable. However, you can experiment with any fruit, and as you can see, even with vegetables. My cream for the roll is sour cream, however, it can be replaced with any other one to your taste. For example, cottage cheese or custard will work well here. You can also add any berries, nuts and other flavors to the roll.

Cooking a sponge roll with carrots:

The yolks are separated from the proteins

1. Wash the eggs and divide the whites into yolks. Pour each into a clean and dry container, otherwise they will not whisk properly. Also, make sure that not a single drop of yolk gets into the protein, otherwise it will also not beat up to the desired consistency.

Flour added to the yolks

2. Add sugar to the yolks and beat well with a mixer until bright lemon color and double in volume. Then pour flour into the dough, which sift through a sieve.

The dough is kneaded until crumbly

3. Change the beaters on the mixer by putting on the “hooks” and knead the dough. You will have a flour crumb.

Whipped egg whites and added to the dough

4. Beat the whites with a pinch of salt with a mixer into a white airy mass. Add the whipped egg whites to the dough by a tablespoon and whisk slowly to maintain lightness.
