Here’s our pudding/dessert for Christmas Day. A Bûche de Noël (to please the French side of the family) that is decidedly friendly – no egg, dairy, nuts or seeds.
Ideally the basis of the log would be a light chocolate roulade, but I have yet to work out how to make a pliable, rollable sponge that is egg-free. This Yule log is formed of a ‘sculpted’ chocolate sponge, filled with homemade chocolate spread and coated in lashings of rich chocolate buttercream, just a bigger version of my mini ones.
Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂
