Bûche de Noël

Some Buche de noel recipes have 7 stages and lists of ogre diets as long as your arm. I am not knocking them out of court ( I have been known to make Swedish princess cake more than twice!) but at Christmas sometimes you just want an impressive looking buffet centre pice which hasn't taken you days to make. Lakeland UK have come up wilth a perfectly sized tin, costing under £11, which allows you to do exactly this. It includes a plastic insert in case you want an ice cream filling, as an alternative to cream or fruit.

Lakeland UK have the recipe for a chocolate Swiss roll, filled with clementines and cream. Soak the clementines in Cointreau for a tasty adult version. I think you'll agree the finished article is delightful.

Enjoy! And happy baking

      Thank you for a such a lovely comment. It’s just a plain old chocolate ganache – really good quality chocolate -min70% Cocoa-and double (heavy) cream.
