It may look impressive but making a roulade or jelly roll is easy if you follow the steps. Sprinkle or sift powdered sugar in a x inch rectangle on a clean linen towel. You want the sugar rectangle to be as big, if not a touch bigger, than the baking pan. As soon as you take the cake out of the oven rolling the cake right out of the oven prevents it from cracking or breaking turn it out onto the sugar-coated towel, then peel the wax paper from cake.
Trim any crisp cake edges, if needed. Beginning with the short end, carefully roll up cake and towel together. Let it cool completely on a wire rack, seam side down. Once cooled, unroll the cake and remove towel. Brush the cake with the mixture of hot coffee and sugar; this helps moisten the crumb and brighten the chocolate coffee flavor profile of the cake. If a tall layer cake has always been your go-to dessert for holiday meals, this year try your hand at this festive roulade.
Coat a x x 1-inch jellyroll pan with cooking spray; line with wax paper, and coat with cooking spray. Fold in flour, cocoa, and vanilla. Spread batter evenly into prepared jellyroll pan. Bake in preheated oven until cake surface springs back when gently pressed, about 12 minutes. Sift 3 tablespoons of the powdered sugar in a x inch rectangle on a clean linen towel. Turn cake out onto sugar-coated towel; remove wax paper from cake.
Trim crisp cake edges, if needed. Starting with the short end, carefully roll up cake and towel together, jellyroll style. Let cool completely on a wire rack, seam side down, about 1 hour. Unroll cake; remove towel.Alle Jahre wieder — inzwischen feiere ich das 5. Weihnachtsfest hier mit euch auf dem Blog.
Ein eher seltenes Spektakel. Sie ist nicht gar zu kompliziert, wenn ich auch nicht glaube, dass sich so kurz vor Weihnachten noch einer von euch daran macht, sie nachzubacken. Oder einfach mal so? Den Zitronenabrieb und die geschmolzene Butter untermixen. Die Gelatine in eiskaltem Wasser einweichen.
Dann die Sahne cremig schlagen und unter die Vanillecreme ziehen. Den Biscuit Madeleine in je zwei Schichten von 1 cm Dicke schneiden. In einer Blechdose trocken aufbewahren. Gelatine in eiskaltem Wasser einweichen. Wasser, Zucker, Vanille und Glucosesirup zum Kochen bringen. Sie muss mindestens 3 Stunden auftauen. Ich verabschiede mich mit diesem Beitrag in die Weihnachtspause. Ich freue mich, wie immer wahnsinnig auf die gemeinsame Zeit mit unseren Kindern und Enkeln. Ich jedoch bekomme einen kleinen Prozentsatz des Kaufpreises als Provision.
Liebe Maren, sehr festlich kommt sie daher, Deine Kreation, dem Anlass angemessen und wie von Dir nicht anders zu erwarten. Vielen Dank, liebe Marlies! Das kennst du sicher auch. Bon Appetit et bon Noel Mataton. Sicher superlecker! Liebe Maren, eine tolle Kombination, ich mag Vanille mit Heidelbeere sehr gerne.
Ganz herzlichen Dank, liebe Simone! Vielen, lieben Dank! Ich hoffe du wirst noch viele nachbackenswerte Rezepte bei mir finden. Liebe Maren. Hallo Maren! Ich hoffe bei dir auch. Wir haben das Weihnachtsfest genossen, auch wenn eine Grippe meinen Mann im Griff hatte.Beautiful work as always! Love the different way you made the mushrooms and the texture of the cake looks exactly like a log.
Bûche de Noël au chocolat
What a beautiful Buche de Noel! I love the idea of making macaron mushrooms - so cute! Hi, Heather! Do you have a recipe for homemade chocolate fondant that would work?
Hi Kate! I wish I had a trusty recipe for you! I only have a vanilla fondant recipe, and I've yet to venture into chocolate fondant territory. I used Satin Ice dark chocolate fondant for this recipe.
It tastes like a tootsie roll, but more chocolaty. I hope to add chocolate fondant to my recipe index in Thanks for asking! Oh, good luck with the chocolate fondant!! I'll be waiting patiently.
I'll let you know how it goes! Did you buy the meringues from anywhere on the internet? Would just make my Christmas baking life easier :.
I completely understand. You might order some plain meringues and dip them in chocolate at home. Or you could just use un-dipped like these link followsthat you can order from Amazon!

Natalie December 9, at AM. Kate December 9, at PM.This wooden-log shaped dessert is a distinctly celebrated French tradition — or might I say, an institution! The traditional one, that will go for one of the 3 classics: chocolatepraline or frosted chestnut. And the one that plays with new flavour combinations and creative looks.
But it is actually much easier than what you might think simply follow the steps, really and it will surely make an impact when you bring it to the table at dessert.
Every bite is so flavorful and festive, but a slice is actually pretty light — which makes it totally acceptable to enjoy 2 slices. It is Christmas, after all. A classic in French baking, genoise cake relies on air suspended in the batter whipped egg whitesinstead of chemincal leavening, to provide volume.
Plus, it has a delicious, deep cocoa flavour. In this recipe, the genoise is cocoa-based no flourwhich makes it light-as-air, gluten-free, and most importantly, softer in texture. When the cake layer is cool, gently unroll the cake and immediately spread the filling into it and roll it back up to not lose any moisture.
Ganache, in French pastry, is a classic glaze or frosting made by heating cream, then pouring it over chopped chocolate of any kind. I added instant espresso powder into the mix to give it a delightful mocha flavour. The ganache needs some chiling time in the fridge to set. Do not chill it too long maximum 30 minutes or it will thicken too much and be hard to spread on the buche. I decorated mine with chocolate covered cocoa beans and some greenery to match with the mocha theme. For garnish Chocolate covered coffee beans Powdered Sugar Cocoa powder.
Grease the paper. Step 1. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolk with half of the sugar until pale and fluffy about 5 minutes. Beat in the salt, vanilla and then the cocoa powder. Step 2.
In another mixing bowl or simply wash and dry the same bowlbeat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add the rest of the sugar, and keep beating until stiff peaks form.To make his hand carved log, special moulds were made by the teams of Ritz Paris.

The Ritz Paris. Photo: Laurent Fau. Anne-Sophie Pic.Adorned with frosting, confectioners' sugar and meringue mushrooms, the jellyroll-style cakes are decorated to resemble yule logs, the large logs selected for the hearth -- originally for the solstice, but the practice was adapted and incorporated into the Christian holiday. The cakes require a bit of planning, and rolling them can be finicky, but the end result is well worth the effort. And don't fret even if your cake cracks while rolling: Cracks will only add to its rustic, log-like look.
The meringue mushrooms can be made in advance and will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Traditional Buches de Noel often include a chestnut filling with chocolate ganache or buttercream frosting. Our version uses a rich malted milk chocolate buttercream for the filling and keeps the cake simple with a dusting of confectioners' sugar instead of frosting. You could, absolutely, make the chocolate sponge for this cake from scratch, but surprisingly, we found cake made using a doctored-up boxed mix to work and taste the best.
Heat oven to degrees. Line the bottom and sides of a half-sheet pan jellyroll with parchment paper. We used two pre-cut sheets and overlapped them slightly.
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer until thick and pale yellow, about 10 minutes. Add cake mix, espresso powder, vanilla, water and oil; beat on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 1 minute, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter into pan, spreading it evenly with a rubber spatula. Generously dust a non-terrycloth dish towel with confectioners' sugar. Quickly, but carefully, turn cake upside down onto the towel; remove parchment. While hot, carefully roll up cake and towel to form a long log.
Transfer log to a cooling rack and cool completely, at least 1 hour. Gently unroll cake and remove towel. Using an offset spatula, spread the remaining Milk Chocolate Buttercream evenly over cake; roll up cake. Using a sharp knife, at an angle cut a 4-inch piece off one end.
This piece will be used to create a branch. Using some of the reserved frosting, "glue" the angled end of the piece to the side of the cake, roughly in the middle. Decorate as desired with confectioners' sugar, Meringue Mushrooms, Sugared Cranberries and Sugared Rosemary, using the reserved buttercream to fix the mushrooms in place. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, malted milk powder, salt if using and half of the confectioners' sugar with an electric mixer on low speed until incorporated.
Mix in the vanilla. Add the remaining sugar and beat on medium speed until frosting is pale. In a slow and steady stream, drizzle in the melted chocolate while beating on high, scraping the sides of the bowl and the beaters as necessary, until the frosting is very light and fluffy. Use immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.
The frosting will keep, refrigerated, in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Bring refrigerated frosting to room temperature and beat until aerated before using. Frosting recipe adapted from Cake Magic! If you don't have a piping bag, you can use a quart-size zip-close bag with one corner snipped off, but your stems will not be as round.
Put the egg whites into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, and beat on medium-low until the whites look very frothy, about 3 minutes. Add the lemon juice and salt, then increase the speed to medium. When the egg whites can hold soft peaks, sprinkle in the sugar a little at a time; it should take about a minute to add it all. Increase the speed to medium high, and continue whipping until the meringue is thick and can hold very stiff peaks.
Beat in vanilla. To pipe the mushroom caps: Hold the piping bag about a half-inch above the baking sheet and give the bag one good squeeze.Bring the bea ut y of the natural world to your table with this time-honored French holiday dessert.
See our pro tips for helpful tricks to make it even easier. Hi Debbie!
Before the ganache set, we used the tines of a fork to make strokes and marks on the surface to make it look like tree bark. Hi I am making this now. This is to be served tomorrow for a large family gathering.
I was going to complete tonight and place in fridge so I am not rushing to make it tomorrow. I see your instructions state serve immediately.
You will also want to take the cake out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes to an hour before serving to let it come to room temperature. Hi, thank you for checking in. You could substitute the Dutch process cocoa powder for high quality cocoa powder, but it will probably throw off the taste and texture of the cake.
For Dutch process cocoa powder, the cocoa beans that make the powder are washed in an alkaline solution to neutralize their acidity. Let us know if you have any more questions! I made this for Christmas and it was fabulous. Is a keeper in our house and am again making it today for Christmas. It dawned on me after last year that I may be rolling it the wrong way as it was very long and hard to store in the fridge last year. Thank you for your response in advance. In our recipe, we advise our readers to roll the cake lengthwise, which means from the long-end, not the sorter end.
You might run out of filling if you do it from the short end, creating a larger spiral that might lead to cracking your cake roll with the weight. Let us know if you have any trouble rolling your cake for the yule log. Happy baking! I used their recipe as a guide and only minimal changes to […].
I made this last year for Christmas. I made my meringues coffee flavor by adding 2 tsp instant espresso powder to the sugar. You can make them ahead but keep them in an airtight plastic bag or other container so they retain crispness. Meringue easily lasts 3 days this way. The cake was delicious and a huge hit. I would make this again.
