When it comes to favourite Christmas desserts, not much can beat a traditional Christmas Pudding. But if there’s anything that can compete with the old British favourite, it has to be a Christmas Yule Log.
Not only is it a delicious chocolate treat but it’s also the perfect sweet finish for even the most (over)indulgent of Christmas dinners. A dessert that is a favourite with all the family and not likely to result in any leftovers for Boxing Day.
The iconic Yule Log is something that holds origins from France and the 19th Century but is now enjoyed across the globe, particularly in Europe. Known as bûche de Noël in it’s native language, the Yule Log cake was inspired by the traditional Yule log, an actual log which would be burned around Christmas.
This Yule Log recipe comes straight from Granny and is exactly what you’d expect; a light chocolatey sponge, rolled to perfection, filled & smothered with sweet chocolate buttercream, and festively decorated however you please.
This worked beautifully. My 12-year old granddaughter did an excellent job.
i bet she didnt. no need to lie
How long will this keep once made please? Thank you
about an hour before your overweight husband gobbles it all up
steph, there really is no need to assume people’s husbands are overweight. Or that they have a husband for that matter! Please spread only kindness, not rudeness. #spreadthekindness trisha XOXO
She was making a joke, just a bit of fun. Your remark was completely out of line
