Hi, I'm back (^^)"
Actually I'm here all the time, I'm still following the blogs I love dearly, reading my favourite blogger's posts whenever I have the time.
Right, I'll like to post one of mine before it expired..haha! Yeah...2016 is just a few days ahead and my post today is the Christmas Yule Log that I've baked for our Christmas this year.
A black forest Swiss roll transformed into a log. Not much decoration this year, but I'm glad that everyone loves it.
The log..first coated with beaten whipping cream which mixed with some cocoa powder.
Then covered with a thick layer of chocolate ganache.....
Mixed some icing sugar with water and lemon juice to make some white frosting...slightly dripped some frosting here and there to look like melted snow.
Then decorated with some figurine (Santa) and others..all store bought...hehe!
Ta-Da...my Yule Log for this year's Christmas is done!!
A soft and fluffy log that everyone adored...yummy!!
Recipe for the Chocolate sponge:
6 egg yolks
20g fine sugar
60g fresh milk
45g corn oil
100g low gluten flour
15g corn flour
2 tbsps cocoa powder
6 egg whites
70g fine sugar
~ Beat egg yolks with 20g sugar until bubble forms
~ Add in oil and milk, mix well
~ Mix in both flours and cocoa powder and mix well. Set aside
~ Whisk egg whites wuth 70g sugar till form a soft peak
~ Mix the beaten egg whites with the egg yolks batter gently
~ Pour into a 10x14" lined tray
~ Bake at 180'C for 12-15 minutes
~ Remove from tray and remove the lined paper as well once the sponge is done
~ Cool the sponge completely and spread with prepared whipping cream, sprinkled some cocoa powder and placed pitted cherries
~ Gently roll the sponge up and let it stay at the shape for at least 10-15 minutes
**I've soaked the pitted cherries with some rum before I placed them on the sponge. This made the pitted cherries tastier if you like alcohol like me..haha!
