Brazo de Mercedes

Brazo de mercedes! Who doesn’t get excited when you know that you’re going to have it for dessert. This egg, condensed milk and sugar combination recipe is just delicious. I did a poll on our social media pages and Brazo de Mercedes got most of the votes. So, your wish is my command.

Here’s how to cook Brazo de Mercedes:


8 Eggs (separate white and yolk)
3/4 cup Sugar
1 can Jolly Condensada
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
Confectioners’ Sugar


1. Prepare whites eggs in a bowl. Add the cream of tartar and beat slowly with an electric mixer. Once bubbles starts to appear, gradually add the sugar. While adding the sugar, increase the speed of the mixer until you achieve the right meringue texture. (see video for more details)

2. Grease the wax paper and place on the baking pan. Pour in the meringue and spread out evenly. Bake at 120°C for about 30-40 minutes until the top part turns brown. Set aside and let it cool down.

3. Meanwhile, prepare the egg yolks in a pan, beat and add the condensed milk and vanilla extract. Turn on the heat, set it to low and cook until it forms into custard.

4. Sprinkle some confectioners sugar on top of the baked meringue. Place another sheet of greased wax paper on top and another tray. Then turn it upside down and peel off the wax paper on top. (see video for more details)
