Bûche de Noël

Bûche de Noël (you might recognize it as a yule log) is a delicious Christmas specialty, popular in Luxembourg, France and Belgium. These log-shaped cakes were traditionally made with sponge cake and chocolate buttercream and garnished to look like a log that would be ready to be tossed onto the pile in the ancient fire-festival of the winter solstice.

Now, the bûche come in creative flavors such as espresso and ganache with unique, festive adornments.
