Cooking time: Bûche de Noël

« Bûche de Noël » is the most common dessert eaten on Christmas Eve around here, in France. It is said that it represents the log you put in the hearth to keep the house warm while going to the “Messe de Minuit” (Midnight mess).

There are so many different recipes, styles, tastes…but the classic ones are chocolate, butter cream, coffee and chestnut. Here is the link to a classic recipe by Martha Stewart that is easy to bake.

In Europe they don’t look like logs anymore. Here you have some pictures for a little taste…
Have a sweet week!

See you,

Carmen Dee
