We are down to last two recipes. For Y, I am going to share Christmas cake roll recipe famous in Swiss, Belgium and other European countries. It’s the Yule Log cake or Yule log roll. Yule log is a delicious, moist vanilla cake rolled and shaped to look like a tree branch which then smothered with chocolate whipped cream frosting. This recipe is surely a feast for the eyes and mouth.
After two cakes, I am back with my yeast based bread. This time it’s the famous Czech Christmas bread called Vanocka. It’s braided sweet bread with blanched almonds and raisins. As I managed to prepare a decent challah, I thought giving it a try to the multi-layered braided Vanocka.
