Bûche de Noël

Christmas Log

This certainly was not in our budget, BUT it is Christmas and I needed a baking challenge.  Behold, our Bûche de Noël!

It was actually not that hard to do, just a bit time consuming.  Utterly worth it – I plan on making one for the family’s Christmas Eve party.  I used this recipe from Saveur and just winged it with the coffee buttercream frosting as I was not in the mood to use up a ton of egg whites.  A showstopper and delicious to boot.
