I have no idea where the tradition of Yule Logs has come from, and I’ve never made one before but I fancied giving it a go and it was pretty good – even if I do say so myself!

  • 4 eggs separated
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • pinch of cream of tartar
  • 115 g plain flour

  • 200 g milk chocolate
  • 100 g plain chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven 190C/375F/Gas 5. Grease a large, square baking sheet/tin – we used a Kitchen Craft one and it worked really well.
  • Whisk the egg yolks with 125g caster sugar and add the vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites with the cream of tartar until soft peaks are formed. Add the rest of the sugar and whisk until stiff.
  • Fold some flour into the egg yolk mixture followed by some of the egg white mixture, repeat until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Spread the mixture into the baking tin and bake for 15 minutes. Turn out onto greaseproof paper and roll up whilst still warm. Leave to cool.

    Yule logs are traditionally whole trees that were burnt from Christmas through to 12th night and the ashes kept for good luck! There’s something about Winter solstice too, but I think so many traditions and stories from all over Europe became mixed that I’ve never really heard a definitive answer. Chocolate Yule logs are just us turning everything into food – and delicious they are too. Yours looks lovely, and I’m in awe of your baking sheet – I’ve only got shallow or square ones which makes swiss roll a bit tricky! 😀
