Brazo De Mercedes Recipe

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the egg whites and cream of Tartar and beat for 2 minutes at low speed.
  2. Continue beating at low speed while adding the sugar a tablespoon at a time.
  3. When all sugar has been added, turn speed to medium and beat for another two minutes then increase speed to medium-high and go on beating until stiff peaks form.
  4. Preheat oven at 180°C.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then spray or brush it with enough oil. This will make it easier to remove the meringue from the parchment paper once it is baked.
  6. Transfer the meringue to the lined baking sheet and use a spatula to spread evenly forming a rectangle that is about an inch thick. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile prepare the custard by mixing the egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk in a small pan or pot. Cook the mixture over medium-low heat while continuously stirring until the texture thickens to spreadable paste. Add the vanilla extract before removing from heat then let it cool down completely before spreading.
  8. Remove the meringue from the oven and let it cool down for a few minutes. Generously dust the top of the meringue with powdered sugar using a fine mesh sieve. Take another parchment paper and place it on top of the meringue and then another baking sheet on top of that parchment paper.
  9. Flip the the trays so that the meringue is now on the other baking sheet with the bottom facing up. Peel the other (old) parchment paper. You should now see the white side of the meringue. Spread the custard evenly on top of it leaving about a centimeter at one of the long side uncovered.
  10. Roll it jelly roll fashion starting from the long side that is covered with filling. Brush off excess powdered.
  11. Cut into desired serving size.
