In the bakery near our school, they have started selling a delicious treat called the Christmas log. . It is a cake you can only buy at Christmas time , for a few weeks. A real gift of the gods 🙂
Traditionally it is made with cream butter in and on a Génoise ( sponge cake).
You can get different flavoured “bûche “: vanilla, coffee , chocolate, pistachio…. We prefer the vanilla log.
Very rich cake indeed and quite fattening but … we also have fruit Xmas logs which please your eyes and your taste buds 😉 We can also buy them frozen in shops. We prefer the fresh ones though.
If you like baking , here is an easy recipe to make it yourself. Watch the video.
” Bon appétit” 🙂 🙂 🙂
