Christmas Yule Log



I did it, I made my first Yule Log, I saw a recipe on The BBC Good food site and the lovely Cannela posted one. I pinned them, linked to facebook and tweeted you know me and dreamed of having the guts to make it. I have had my fair share of baking fails so was a little scared. But one afternoon the kids were both napping at the same time! so I figured lets do it, I followed the recipe step by step and the result was a lovely moist chocolate swiss roll.

 I enjoyed a slice, hubby and the kids, I gave some to my neighbor. She's actually a great taste tester, just yesterday I was on my front steps taking pictures of whiskey truffles and she shouted across the street what did you make, so she sampled too. Then the rest I gave to our daughters pre school teacher he loved it. I love this time of year and I am really embracing the fun and challenge of baking to gift to folks, it really makes it special when its made with love and they like it. 

Here's the link to the recipe - Christmas chocolate yule log, I am not clever enough to have developed this one.





Here's a slice for you all, 

Are you making edible gifts? and if so what?

  11. Oh wow....you did your first Christmas yule log! I have been putting it off every year. Wonder why.....hmmm. Just think that's it's difficult to make. Was thinking the other day that I should try. Now that I see yours, I really should try. Just need to find time to make it. Actually would be so good if I'm your neighbour. I'm sure I'll get a portion too :D
