When I said to my boys I was baking a Yule log. They looked at me with puzzled faces. A log? But they were delighted when it arrived on the table. For me I’ve always loved a Yule Log, as I hate dried fruit and most Christmas baking has it in. This however has never been touched by a raisin. Full on chocolate is called for. From the sponge, to the filling to the gorgeous silky buttercream bark!
