This month’s challenge is brought to us by the adventurous Hilda from Saffron and Blueberry and Marion from Il en Faut Peu Pour Etre Heureux.
They have chosen a French Yule Log by Flore from Florilege Gourmand (Edit December 2017: http://plaisirgourmand.perso.cegetel.net now defunct)
This month’s challenge is the cream dessert version of a
Icy French Yule Log – Bûche de Noël
When I read the recipe, I had my doubts that I’ll ever finish the challenge. Too many pans and bowls, to much heavy cream, too many elements:
But finally I did it and served it Christmas Day for dessert.
We like Mousse au Chocolat, Crème brûlée and Choco Crossies, the Praline Crisp insert. But the combination of all wasn’t ours. Glad, I halved the recipe. It can be found at Hilda’s website.

Oh nein, da nehme ich vom bloßen Anschauen schon zu! Das war aber ein Haufen Arbeit, ich bewundere Dich für Deinen Enthusiasmus!
Hut ab! So was beeindruckt mich richtig, vor allem, wenn ich an den Abwasch denke. :-) Schade, dass es Euch nicht so ganz toll geschmeckt hat.
Your log looks great! Very well done, again!
Best wishes for the New Year!
Klingt wirklich sehr üppig und weniger wäre wahrscheinlich mehr gewesen.
Wow, look at all the layers!
It looks very impressive.
Happy New Year to you!
I love the way your layers look: perfect and distinct. Great job!
Looks lovely! Love the Santas. :)
I agree with you! Though I really like each elements separately, I wasn’t that crazy when it was put together, especially the crème brulée insert.
Glad you did make it in the end! It looks terrific, too bad you didn’t love it combined as one dessert. Happy Holidays!!
Congratulations Ulrike for completing this one! I think I’ll follow your lead and half the recipe.. if I ever ever get so far, the more I see these make their appearance the more I shake..
Looks good Ulrike.. That santa doing a headstand is cracking me up.
Well done on this challenge! Shame you did not like as a whole. I too love the individual elements but did like it all together – guess I am a dessert glutton LOL!
Wishing you and your family a happy new year!
ok, vielleicht etwas viel von vielem, aber ich würde für ein stück sogar in den hohen norden deutschlands fahren ;-) lg
This is so pretty. I love all the distinct layers.
The light dusting of sugar is beautiful – and it sets off the layers wonderfully. Great job!
Gorgeous layers! I love the contrast between the biscuit and the chocolate – YUM!
Your layers look incredible!
Vielen Dank fûr diese Recept, das schmeckte gesten.

Everyone but my father agreed that all the elements were just a little much but yours still turned out lovely.
The layers are perfect, well done!
The layers are perfect, Ulrike! While I loved the taste, I actually feel kind of sick from eating all that cream!
Well done Ulkire. Beautiful buche with perfect layesr. This was one involved challege, with loads of cream, loads ot chcolate…but was one of the best desserts I have ever made, or even dreamt of making!
