It’s that time of year! Time to make the much beloved Bûche de Noël!
This year, our sixth, we’re taking a break from inventing a brand new recipe and choosing from one of the FIVE, count the, FIVE Bûche de Noël recipes we’ve offered up in the past five years.
My top choice would be 2013’s Lemon Bûche de Noël. That’s the Lemon Jelly Roll with Lemon Soak, Lemon Cream Filling, Lemon Mascarpone Icing, Meringue Mushrooms and Candied Lemon Slices that I made during the great BLACKOUT of 2013! [Recipe here]
Of course, last year’s Chocolate Hazelnut Bûche de Noël was so fabulous that Huffpost Canada linked to it! That was a Chocolate Hazelnut Jellyroll with Hazelnut Soak, Chocolate Hazelnut Cream, and Chocolate Hazelnut Buttercream. [Recipe here]
Now, what about the Gingerbread Bûche de Noël we made in 2013? That was a Gingerbread Sponge with Orange Whiskey Soak, [orange] Vanilla Cream, and [orange] Cream Cheese Icing. The stuff of fantasy! [Recipe here]
How will we ever decide???????
