Bûche de Noël is the French name for a chocolate yule log. This one is a heavenly flourless chocolate cake that's essentially a swiss roll rolled with a luscious chocolate whipped cream. Traditionally, Buche de Noel is decorated with icing sugar to resemble snow on a Yule log.
Perfect for chocolate lovers! Great for entertaining, deceptively easy to make. Perfect for people who can't have gluten. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, or simply dusted with icing sugar. I flour the cake tin using cocoa powder so it won't leave white marks on the cake and keeps it totally gluten free. You can make an icing for the top or pour over melted chocolate.
The addition of ground almonds sets this cake apart from others, and gives it a a rich and tender crumb. Serve warm with a dollop of cream for a truly luxurious pudding.
A very good high protein alternative to flourless chocolate cake. Give it a try!
Fantastic chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has donated to TREE AID this wonderful cake. Hugh belives: "Villagers in Africa pick fruit, nuts and leaves straight from the trees around their villages-food doesn't come more local than that. It's a lifeline for them and vital that we do what we can to ensure they have enough trees for food and the many other products and benefits trees provide."
