Refreshing Lemon role – something for the hot summer days

Bisher hatten wir hier im Schwabenländle einen schönen Sommer, wir können uns in dieser Hinsicht kaum beschweren. Es gibt aber Tage an denen es so warm ist, dass man nicht lange in der Küche stehen, aber trotzdem einen leckeren und erfrischenden Nachtisch genießen möchte. Eine gute Alternative zum Backen sind bei solchen Temperaturen sicher Kühlschranktorten, Cremes oder Eis. Da ich aber etwa 4 Jahre lang mit einer Küche leben musste, in der zwar ein Backofen stand, dieser aber nicht für das Backen von Kuchen etc. geeignet war, gab es bei mir die letzten Jahre über nur Nachtische aus dem Kühlschrank. Endlich habe ich einen guten Backofen und diesen möchte ich so oft es geht nutzen. Ich muss schließlich die letzten Jahre Backentzug nachholen 😉

For this reason, today I decided to go for a refreshing lemon role. This is relatively quick and easy to prepare, so you do not have to stand in the kitchen long. I chose two reasons for lemons: they are in my opinion more refreshing than, for example, strawberries and – which is probably the more decisive reason 😉 – I LOVE lemons!

Hopefully, you too or a bit more for this recipe:

The preparation of the role is really very easy and relatively quick. The worst thing is probably to wait for the two-hour cooling time to try something from the roll. I can tell you, however, that the role previously already tastes delicious. I was the sight and the citrusy scent that is not long resist and had to once the role was somewhat cooled sample equal to it.

I hope you also liked the role so well and makes for a little refreshment on hot summer days!

Greetings from my kitchen
