How to Make Chocolate Yule Log Cake

  • Sift the cocoa powder, Nescafe, flour and baking powder together.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together well.

  • Now add the sifted flour with the other ingredients and fold in the mixture to form a smooth slightly thick consistency without lumps.
  • Pour into a greased and papered long cake tin and bake in a hot oven for 30 to 35 minutes till slightly golden on top.
  • Remove from the cake tin and turn it out on a sheet of paper, which has been liberally sprinkled with icing sugar.
  • Roll the cake tightly with this paper so as to form a log and keep aside to cool.
  • Beat the fresh cream with 3 tsp of icing sugar and 2 tsp of cocoa powder till peaks are formed.
  • Unroll the log cake from the paper and place on a suitable plate.
  • Using a spatula, cover the cake with the icing.
  • Then with a wet fork make long lines across the surface of the icing to create a bark effect on the log.
  • Store in the refrigerator until required for serving.
  • Before serving, dust with icing sugar and decorate with some fresh small leaves.
