How to make your Christmas YULE LOG

For the sponge

  1. Preheat oven to 180C

  2. Break eggs into bowl, add sugar and whisk until it changes colour and is quite thick. Sieve cocoa powder and 'fold' into mix.

  3. Place greaseproof paper on a baking tray and pour the mixture onto it.

  4. Cook for 15 - 20 minutes (until bouncy) then turn out onto greaseproof paper and cover loosely with the tray (to keep it moist). Allow to cool.

For the icing

1. Whisk the double cream until thick.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the butter and icing sugar. Be patient - it takes a while!

3. Add the melted chocolate and stir (it can be melted over a saucepan of warm water)

Compiling the log....

  1. Turn out the sponge and trim the sides so they are even.

  2. Spread with the double cream.

  3. Use the greaseproof paper to help you roll into a log (lengthways)

  4. Spread with the icing and use a cocktail stick/fork to make grooves

  5. Allow to set in the fridge for a couple of hours per serving
