The Food Exchange for this month is super simple: it’s Christmas time! I think you will never run out of recipes with this one, so Lucy and I decided to go for the same topic as last year. It is one of the best one’s, I am convinced.
Like every month Lucy (from England, living in Germany) gives me a recipe or an idea what I could bake and I (from Germany, living in England) do the same the other way round.
Lucy’s challenge for me this month: Bake a Yule Log. This was the perfect idea for me, as I had never made one before.
I looked for recipes and ended up using one of Nigella Lawson. You can find the recipe here.
The cake was fairly easy to make and even if the pastry has one or two holes (which would obviously neeeveeeer happen to me ;)), you won’t be able to see them as everything gets covered in icing.
Decorating the cake was the best part and the icing turned out not too soft so that it was easy to spread it on top of the cake.
If I was at home for Christmas, I think I would make it as a dessert :).
Thanks, Lucy for the idea – it won’t have been the last time that I’ve made a Yule Log!
And now, everyone, please head over to Lucy to see what she has made!
