Buche de Noel


I’ve always been fascinated with food from other countries and especially when it came to Christmas delicacies.  Yes I used the “C” word and it’s not even October. I’ve seen these a couple times on the tube right around Christmas time and I wonder how hard they would b to prepare and assemble.  Maybe this is something that I should turn over to my oldest since she is more of a pastry baker than I am.

Anyone have any experience with these?  It would be fascinating to have one of these for Christmas dessert.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

  1. Now that looks yummy 🙂
    But I really recommend that you try this before at least 2 or 3 times so you can be sure it will be a success for Christmas dinner 😉
    Don’t forget to tell us so we can envy you for your buche

  2. If you can make a jelly roll cake you can make this. It takes a special type of cake – almost a thin sponge cake. Put the icing in the centre and roll it. Then ice the outside. You can make the secondary branch as an add on. – No problem.
