This is a lovely cake with cherries and raisins added for those of you who don't want to go to the trouble of making fruit cakes. It’s best if you can wait several days before eating to allow the flavours to develop. This cake also freezes well.
A beautifully festive chocolate cake, the Yule log is not too hard to make. Watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Yule Log Video.
This cake is a must on my Christmas table. You can use whatever kind of icing you prefer but I like the cream.
I usually make this moist cake in the days between Christmas and New Year so I can use up leftover pantry ingredients from Christmas baking. You could also add nuts or other dried fruit.
These are rich chocolate cupcakes with a brownie-like taste and consistency. They are very easy to make.
