This is a wonderful cake for Christmas. It has brandied fruit in a chocolate Swiss roll whilst ‘Crème au Beurre’ creates a wonderful rich taste to the beautiful log and snow decoration.

Making a Yule log cake is easy with this recipe that uses Nutella for the filling! Dust with icing sugar to imitate snow, if desired.

Although traditional at Christmas I always thought that a yule log would be too hard to make, but in fact it isn't any more or less difficult than many other cake recipes.
