Yule Log (Buche de Noel)
Here I am back with another Christmas speciality.
Well, I always wondered why they ever called this luscious cake roll a Yule log and why was it synonymous with Christmas . A few tapping and google had it all. Actually, it was an ancient European tradition to collect yule logs and burn it over the 12 days of Christmas and they even reserved a piece of the current years log to light up the log for next years Christmas !!
And the Yule log cake began to made as a symbolic representation of this ancient tradition when the actual custom fell out of use.
I had been toying with the idea of making this for a long time now but somehow never got to put it down on the plate until now.
And people, this just doesn't look amazing but each spoon full of this scrumptious cake is an absolute divine experience.
