We’re dreaming of a white Christmas with this decadent white chocolate log cake (aka bûche de Noël) – it makes quite a striking Christmas dessert.
If you’re more of a dark chocolate fan, try this white and dark chocolate Yule log, which is the perfect mix of the two.
- 28.1g (15.6g saturated)
- 42,7g (31.9g sugars)
Ensure the white chocolate is cool (10 minutes should do it) before adding it to the buttercream (step 4). If it’s too warm, the butter and sugar will melt into a sauce that can’t be rescued.
The buttercream can be made and chilled up to 2 days ahead.
Feuilletine are crispy flakes of thin pastry. They add a light crunch to puddings and a buttery, caramel flavour. Available from Waitrose and Sous Chef.
