Chocolate Yule Log Cake/Buche de Noël

Christmas without yule log cake is not complete, usually every year we used to buy either icecream yule log cake or cream yule log cake, this year i really want to give a trial to make out this famous yule log cake at home..Even few small hands helped me to whisk the egg whites and helped me a lot to prepare this delicious chocolate yule log cake which was my first attempt,this cake turned out best and good for the first attempt..I was really happy for this trial at home and my lil ones were really happy to enjoy their mom's frist yule log cake, which they relished each and every spoon..As its was my first attempt of this yule cake, i was quite anxious and really dont want to trash if it goes wrong, so i tried for a small yule log cake and it vanished within few hours when i served for our christmas is some clicks which i really have to request to my dearies to wait and i clicked few clicks to show u all my first attempt of this yule log cake with chocolate frosting..

For Cake:
3nos Eggs
1/2cup Sugar
1/4cup Flour
2tbsp Butter

Preheat the oven to 250F..Separate the eggs whites and egg yolks..beat the egg yolks,butter and sugar in a bowl until they turns smooth and pale yellow creamy mixture, add slowly the flour and mix everything well...Meannwhile beat the egg whites separately with a pinch of salt until they turns foamy; gently fold the egg whiles to the already prepared flour mixture and mix everything well..pour the mixture in a tray lined with greased baking paper..bake for 15minutes...immediately roll the baked cake in a slightly wet towel and let it get cool..

For Chocolate Frosting:
100g Dark chocolate bar (chopped)
1tbsp Water
1/2cup Butter
1/4cup Confectioner's sugar

Heat the chopped chocolate pieces with water in a microwave bowl for 3minutes high in microwave oven, take the bowl and mix well, add the butter and confectioner's sugar to the already melted chocolate,beat and turn everything as soft mousse, cover the bowl with a lid and conserve in fridge for an hour..

Once the cake roll get cooled...with a spatule spread the chocolate frosting over the cake roll..roll again well the cake roll..spread well the remaining chocolate spread over the rolled cake roll..with a fork make some lines over the frosting and arrange in fridge for two or three hours..I springled few chocolate vermicelli and confectioner's sugar before arranging in fridge.

I once had a fabulous tasting yule log at an office Xmas party and have always wanted to make it at home. This sounds easy enough and looks great - bookmarking to try.

hi... i tried this today.. that tasted awesome.. but made a big blunder.. I didnt wait for the filling to get tighened in the fridge and I spread them in the cake.. but the stuffing came out of it.. and though tasted good didnt have the full stuffing inside the cake like yours :( will try this again.....
