Daring Bakers: Icy French Yule Log


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

Icy French Yule Log 002

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:

  1. Dacquoise Biscuit
  2. Mousse
  3. Ganache Insert
  4. Praline (Crisp) Insert
  5. Creme Brulee Insert
  6. Icing
      French Yule Log 003

But finally I did it and served it Christmas Day for dessert.

French Yule Log 004

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.
