Cook Bake Decorate
Yule Log Cake
There is no better way to celebrate Christmas than with a cake shaped like a yule log and decorated like a Christmas tree! Here is my recipe and tips to bake an eggnog yule log cake using a homemade Swiss roll
Let’s get started!
Making a log cake sounds very daunting but in truth, it is very simple and easy. This eggnog-flavored yule log cake is a wonderful twist on that classic.
– Most of the ingredients are simple pantry staples or easy to find such as eggnog
Whip the egg whites
In the bowl of a stand mixer with a whisk attachment on medium speed, start whipping the egg whites with cream of tartar and the remaining salt.
Whip the egg yolks, with remaining sugar, melted butter, flour and then fold in the whipped egg whites.
Bake and cool
Pour the batter into a sheet pan. Bake it. Invert the cake and roll in a clean kitchen cloth.
Fill the cake
Once cooled carve the Swiss roll into a log shape.
Melt chocolate spread it over parchment paper then cool and open to let it crack naturally
Decorate the log
Place the bark on the cake then dust with cocoa powder and finally a light dusting of powdered sugar.
