Bûche de Noël

aga, baking, cake, chocolate, christmas

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

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

    • 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.
