Yule log is a unique way to carry on the tradition of celebrating Christmas and the winter solstice by burning a wooden log in the hearth.

This Christmas Yule Log recipe is a deliciously light and moist chocolate sponge cake filled with chocolate whipped cream, rolled into a cylinder, and dusted with powdered sugar to simulate snow. Resembling a chocolate Swiss roll, the yule log is decorated to look like a fallen festive log. It’s a chocoholic’s dream!
