Yule logs such as this one are a staple on many holiday tables around the world come December 25. While they certainlyy look fancy, they are in fact surprisingly easy to pull off. The jelly roll cake is foolproof, with a structure that allows for tear-free rolling up into a log shape. The filling here couldn't be eaiser, too: Just chocolate, cream, and butter melted together until smooth and spreadable.

  • 100 grams flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 200 grams dark chocolate
  • 200 grams cream
  • 50 grams butter


  1. 1With the butterfly of the blender cup, beat the eggs with the sugar. Set to 5m/vel4/98°F.
