Impress Christmas guests with this yule log, or 'Buche de Noel' in French, filled with whipped cream and covered with chocolate ganache.
This is a no fail cake. I did roll it while hot and it rolled beautifully. When I unrolled it to cover in cream it was perfect. I wish this recipe included a ganache for the topping. - 24 Dec 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was my first effort at a yule log and it turned out great! I only cooked it for 8 minutes and it was definitely ready to come out, so be careful not to overcook the cake. I also adapted the ganache by mixing the melted chocolate in with whipped cream because that's what my daughter wanted. Probably would have been just as good as-is in the recipe. Will definitely make again! - 11 Dec 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Overall, this is a good recipe. The reason for a 4 star is because the ingredient amounts listed don't match the written instructions, that was a little confusing. FOLLOW THE MEASUREMENTS IN THE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS. I also recommend sifting the cocoa powder. The first time I made it, I had lumps of cocoa powder in the cake. - 19 Jul 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
