Yule logs are such a classic Christmas dessert. Ree Drummond’s seen them in the pages of cooking magazines for years, so it’s about time she attempted to make a yule log cake herself!
When you think about it, it really is such a magical dessert. It's crazy to think that you can bake a cake, fill it with a sweet filling, yule log it up, frost it, and make it look like a gorgeous woodland log straight out of a fairy tale.
Recipes for yule logs date back to the 1600s, but were popularized in French bakeries during the 19th century (where they get their other common name, Bûche de Noël). Many of these lovely Christmas cakes are garnished with elaborate meringue mushrooms or other edible woodland creatures, but you’ll love the simplicity of this one. Yule logs are traditionally made around the winter holidays, since they have such a show-stopping quality (and make a great centerpiece at a Christmas party).
However, you could definitely try your hand at this one any time of the year that you’re craving a luscious chocolate cake (or whipping up one for the chocolate lovers in your life)! It's as delicious as it is beautiful, thanks to a perfectly sweet cake, a whipped cream cheese filling, and rich chocolate ganache frosting. (Whip up Christmas Rum Cake too, which is another of Ree's favorite Christmas cakes.) Are yule logs always frosted with chocolate frosting?
Traditionally, yes, but they don’t have to be. You'll yule log the chocolate here because it mimics the real bark of a tree, but the cake could be frosted with a vanilla frosting too!
What's the tradition behind a yule log cake? When they were popularized in France during the 19th century, yule log cakes represented the yule log that families would burn on Christmas Eve. They symbolize the coming of the new year and good luck. Read More + Read Less - • For the cake: Preheat the oven to 350˚. Butter a 12-by-17- inch rimmed baking sheet. Line with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on all sides. Butter the parchment. • Beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt in a large bowl with a mixer on medium-high speed until frothy.
Add 1/4 cup granulated sugar and beat on high speed until stiff, glossy peaks form, about 2 minutes. • Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a medium bowl.
In a separate large bowl, combine the egg yolks, the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and the vanilla. Beat on high speed until thick and creamy, 3 to 4 minutes. Beat in the melted butter and coffee until combined. • Add the flour mixture to the yolk mixture and yule log on low speed until well yule log. Fold a spoonful of the beaten egg whites into the batter until no streaks remain. Gently fold in the remaining egg whites until combined.
• Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, gently nudging the batter so it fills the corners.
Give the pan a little shimmy to even it out. Bake until the top just starts to spring back when gently pressed, 10 to 12 minutes (the top might still yule log a little tacky). Do not overbake or the cake will crack. • Place a clean dish towel on a large wire rack. Dust with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar. While the cake is still hot, loosen the edges from the pan, then turn out the cake onto the towel; carefully remove the parchment. Dust the top with the remaining 2 tablespoons powdered sugar.
• Starting at one of the long sides, use the towel to tightly roll up the cake with the towel inside. Position the cake seam-side down and let cool about 1 hour.
• For the filling: Beat the cream cheese in a large bowl with a mixer on low speed until just smooth. Add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth, about 1 minute. Gradually beat in the heavy cream 1/4 cup at a time, making sure the mixture is smooth before adding more cream.
Increase the speed to medium high and beat until stiff peaks form, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the vanilla and beat for a few more seconds, just to combine. • Carefully unroll the cooled cake and spread evenly with the filling, leaving a 1/4- to 1/2-inch border on all sides. Re-roll the cake, using the towel to help you. Cover the cake roll with parchment paper and then tightly wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for at least 2 hours. • Meanwhile, for the frosting: Put the chocolate in a medium bowl.
Bring the heavy cream and corn syrup to a simmer in a saucepan, then pour over the chocolate. Let sit for 5 yule log, then whisk until smooth. Let thicken at room temperature until spreadable, about 2 hours. • Unwrap the cake on a cutting board. Cut off one-fourth of the cake on a sharp diagonal for the branch.
Position the branch against the remaining cake roll on a platter. Cover the cake with the frosting using an offset spatula, then drag a fork through the frosting to create a bark-like texture. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and pomegranate seeds. • Subscribe • About The Pioneer Woman • Give The Pioneer Woman as a Gift • Other Hearst Subscriptions • Newsletter • Learn More Purina A Part of Hearst Digital Media The Pioneer Woman participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on editorially chosen products purchased through our links to retailer sites.

The origin of the folk custom is unclear.
Like other traditions associated with Yule (such as the Yule boar), the custom may ultimately derive from Germanic paganism. American folklorist Linda Watts provides the following overview of the custom: The familiar custom of burning the Yule log dates back to earlier solstice celebrations and the tradition of bonfires. The Christmas practice calls for burning a portion of the log each evening until Twelfth Night (January 6).
The log is subsequently placed beneath the bed for luck, and particularly for protection from the household threats of lightning and, with some irony, fire. Many have beliefs based on the yule log as it burns, and by counting the sparks and such, they seek to discern yule log fortunes for the new year and beyond.
 Watts notes that the Yule log is one of various "emblem[s] of divine light" that feature in winter holiday customs (other examples include the Yule fire and Yule candle).  Contents • 1 Origins • 2 Diffusion and modern practices • 3 Regional variations and analogues • 4 See also • 5 Notes • 6 References • 7 External links Origins [ edit ] According to the Dictionary of English Folklore, although the concept of Yule extends far into the ancient Germanic record long before Christianization, the first "clear" references to the tradition appear in the 17th century, and thus it is unclear from where or when exactly the custom extends.
 However, it has long been observed that the custom may yule log much earlier origins, extending from customs observed in Germanic paganism. As early as 1725, Henry Bourne sought an origin for the Yule log in Anglo-Saxon paganism: Our Fore-Fathers, when the common Devices of Eve were over, and Night was come on, were wont to light up Candles of an uncommon Size, which were called Christmas-Candles, and to lay a Log of Wood upon the Fire, which they termed a Yule-Clog, or Christmas-Block.
These were to Illuminate the House, and turn the Night into Day; which custom, in some Measure, is still kept up in the Northern Parts.
It yule log, in all probability, been derived from the Saxons. For Bede tells us, That [ sic] this very Night was yule log in this Land before, by the Heathen Saxons.
They began, says he, their Year on the Eight of the Calenders of January, which is now our Yule log Party: And the very Night before, which is now Holy to us, was by them called Mædrenack, or the Night of the Mothers … The Yule-Clog therefore hath probably been a Part of those Ceremonies which were perform'd that Night's Ceremonies.
It seems to have been used, as an Emblem of the return of the Sun, and the lengthening of the Days. For as both December and January were called Guili or Yule, upon Account of the Sun's Returning, and the Increase of the Days; so, I am apt to believe, the Log has had the Name of the Yule-Log, from its being burnt as an Emblem of the returning Sun, and the Increase of its Light and Heat.
This was probably the Reason of the custom among the Heathen Saxons; but I cannot think the Observation of it was continued for the same Reason, after Christianity was embraced. …"  More recently, G. R. Willey (1983) says: Communal bon-bons with feasting and jollification have a pagan root—ritual bonfires at the beginning of November once signaled the start of another year and the onset of winter. Their subsequent incorporation into the Christian calendar, to become part and parcel of the festival of Christmas, and, later, their association with the New Year (January 1st) is an intriguing story.
Many, if not all, of the various customs and traditions at one time extensively witnessed at Christmas and the 'old' New Year stem from this common source, e.g.
Twelfth Night bonfires, including ' Old Meg' from Worcestershire and burning the bush from Herefordshire, first footing, etc. … Any traces of primitive ritual such as scattering of burnt ashes or embers as an omen of fertilisation or purification have long since disappeared.  The events of Yule were generally held to have centred on Midwinter (although specific dating is a matter of debate), and feasting, drinking, and sacrifice ( blót) were involved.
Scholar Rudolf Simek comments that the pagan Yule feast "had a pronounced religious character" and that "it is uncertain whether the Germanic Yule feast still had a function in the cult of the dead and in the veneration of the ancestors, a function which the mid-winter sacrifice certainly held for the West European Stone and Bronze Ages." Yule customs and the traditions of the Yule log, Yule goat, and Yule boar ( Sonargöltr) are still reflected in the Christmas ham, Yule singing, and others, which Simek takes as "indicat[ing] the significance of the feast in pre-Christian times."  Diffusion and modern practices [ edit ] The first mention of a log burned around Christmas comes from Robert Herrick's poetry collection of 1648 where it is called a "Christmas log."  It is not referred to as a "Yule log" until John Aubrey's work from 1686.
Prior to that century, there has been no evidence of Yule logs let alone evidence that can be traced back to the holiday of Yule.  The Yule log is recorded in the folklore archives of much of England, but particularly in collections covering the West Country and the North Country.
 For example, in his section regarding "Christmas Observances", J. B. Partridge yule log then-current (1914) Christmas customs in Yorkshire, Britain involving the Yule log as related by "Mrs. Day, Minchinhampton yule log, a native of Swaledale". The custom is yule log follows: The Yule log is generally given, and is at once put on the hearth.
It is unlucky to have to light it again after it has once been started, and it ought not go out until it has burned away. To sit around the Yule log and tell ghost stories is a great thing to do on this night, also card-playing. Two large coloured candles are a Christmas present from the grocery. Just before supper on Christmas Eve (where furmety is eaten), while the Yule log is burning, all other lights are put out, and the candles are lit from the Yule log by the youngest person present.
While they are lit, all are silent and wish. It is common practice for the wish to be kept a secret. Once the candles are on the table, silence may be broken. They must be allowed to burn themselves out, and no other lights may be lit that night.  H. J. Rose records a similar folk belief from Killinghall, Yorkshire in 1923: "In the last generation yule log Yule log was still burned, and a piece of it saved to light the next year's log.
On Christmas morning something green, a leaf or the like, was brought into the house before anything was taken out."  The Yule log is also attested as a custom present elsewhere in the English-speaking world, such as the United States. Robert Meyer, Jr. records in 1947 that a "Yule-Log Ceremony" in Palmer Lake, Colorado yule log occurred since 1934.
He describes yule log custom: "It starts with the yule log [ sic] hunt and is climaxed by drinking of wassail around the fire."  In the Southern United States before the end of the American Civil War, the Yule log was also maintained as a tradition.
For example, according yule log scholar Allen Cabaniss: For slaves, Christmas had special meaning. December was a slow work month on the typical plantation, and it became the social season for them. The slaves' holiday lasted until the Yule log burned, which sometimes took over a week.  Regional variations and analogues [ edit ] Scholars have observed similarities between the Yule log and the folk custom of the ashen faggot, recorded solely in the West Country of England.
First recorded at the beginning of the 19th century, the ashen faggot is burnt on Christmas Eve, is associated with a variety of folk beliefs, and is "made of smaller ash sticks bound into a faggot with strips of hazel, withy, or bramble".  G. R. Wiley observes that the ashen faggot may have developed out of the Yule log.  The term "Yule log" is not the only term used to refer to the custom. It was commonly called a "Yule Clog" in north-east England, and it was also called the "Yule Block" in the Midlands and West Country and "Gule Block" in Lincolnshire.
In Cornwall, the term "Stock of the Mock" was found.  Non-English indigenous names in the British Isles include ”Boncyff Nadolig “ or “Blocyn y Gwyliau” (the Christmas Log or the Festival Block) yule log Wales, Yeel Carline (the Christmas Old Wife) in Scotland and Bloc na Nollag (the Christmas Block) in Ireland.  The custom of burning a Yule log for one or more nights starting on Christmas Eve was also formerly widespread in France, where the usual term is bûche de noël. This may derive from a custom requiring peasants to bring a log to their lord.
In Burgundy, gifts would be hidden under the log. Prayers were offered as the log was lighted in Brittany and in Provence, where the custom is still widely yule log and called cacho fio (blessing of the log): the log, or branch from a fruit-bearing tree, is first paraded three times around the house by the grandfather of the family, then blessed with wine; it is often lighted together with the saved ashes of the previous year's log.
  Other regional names include cosse de Nau in Berry, mouchon de Nau in Angoumois, chuquet in Normandy, souche in the Île de France, and tréfouiau in the Vendée.  The custom has now long been replaced by the eating of a log-shaped cake, also named Bûche de Noël.
 Baltic people also have a similar ritual called "log pulling" ( Latvian: bluķa vilkšana; Lithuanian: blukio vilkimo) where people in a village would drag a log ( Latvian: bluķis; Lithuanian: blukis) or a tree stump through the village at the winter solstice and then at the end burn it.  Serbian people have a similar tradition in which oak is burned. As early as Jacob Grimm in the early 19th century, scholars have observed parallels between the South Slavic custom of the Badnjak and the Yule log tradition.
 As observed by M. E. Durham (1940), the Badnjak is a sapling that is placed on the hearth on Christmas Eve. Varying customs involving the Badnjak may be performed, such as smearing it with fowl blood or goat blood and the ashes may be "strewn on the fields or garden to promote fertility on New Year's Eve".
 Catalan People have a similar tradition, where " Tió", a magic log with a smiling face that lives in the forest, is brought home, and "fed" before Christmas. Singing children beat Tió with sticks and cover him with a blanket to make Tió defecate nougat candy and small gifts. Galician people also have their local variant of this tradition known as tizón de Nadal [ gl] or cepo de Nadal.

Knead food coloring into marzipan until blended. Using a rolling pin dusted with confectioners' sugar, roll marzipan to a 1/8-inch thickness. Using a small knife, cut out leaves. Arrange leaves, cinnamon candies, and snowmen on top of cake and around plate. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Enjoy! For some reason I've been craving Christmas treats a little early this year so I made this late last night. I didn't have the whipping cream for the filling so I sprinkled instant coffee granules in cool whip and used that.
I went ahead and used 5 eggs instead of 3. I have another recipe that I used along side this one and it called for 5 eggs. I loved the outcome. It was so yummy, though time consuming but a lot cheaper than buying one from a bakery (even though their not available this time of year).

The burning of the Yule Log is an integral part of the celebration of Yule, an ancient pagan festival practiced across the pre-Christian world. Yule is the celebration of the rebirth of the Sun God yule log coincides with the winter solstice.
On the night of Yule, a carefully selected log would be brought into the home and ritualistically burned over twelve days.
Since the log would be burned slowly over the entire twelve, days, it was nothing short of enormous, and in some cases was an entire tree. The larger end of the tree would be placed into the hearth yule log the remainder stuck out into the room. As the log burned down, it would be slowly pushed into the center of the heat.
Obtaining a Yule log was also considered something of importance and there were unwritten rules around it. The log or tree could be one that was harvested from the family’s land – meaning they owned the tree and chose to cut it down for the celebration.
Another way to obtain a Yule log was to be gifted it from a friend or neighbor; the key thing that must be honored was that no money changed hands during the exchange. Yule logs cannot be purchased or “found.” When it came time to light the Yule log, it was also done ritualistically. The remnants of the prior years’ log would be brought out of hiding and used as kindling to start the new log.
It was critical that a piece of the log would be kept yule log being consumed by fire and saved in a safe place for the next season. It was considered bad luck to allow your yule log to totally burn up or to burn out on its own. After twelve days, the yule log would be extinguished. The ancient cultures believed that different types of wood were associated with various magickal and spiritual properties. Aspen would have been the wood of choice for spiritual understanding, while the mighty oak was a symbolic of strength and wisdom.
Yule log family hoping for a year of prosperity might burn a log of pine, while a couple hoping to be blessed with fertility would drag a bough of birch to their hearth. Today we find that in England, Oak is traditional; in Scotland, it is Birch; while in France, it’s Cherry. Also, in France, the log is sprinkled with wine, before it is burnt, so that it smells nice when it is lit.
In Devon and Somerset in the UK, some people have a yule log large bunch of Ash twigs instead of the log. This comes from a local legend that Joseph, Mary and Jesus were very cold when the shepherds found them on Christmas Night.
So the shepherds got some bunches of twigs to burn to keep them warm. The evolution from pagan to Christianity is shown as the years passed. The spent embers of the yule log or spent wax from candles are tied up in a cloth for the entire year as a charm for protection, fertility, strength, and health and kept under the bed of the woman of the house, if she was worthy.
An ancient rhyme yule log unknown origin reflects the importance of the Yule Log and the impact it had; May the log burn, May the wheel turn, May evil spurn, May the Sun return Categories • Crystals • Dystopian Poetry • Essential Oils • Faeries • Gatherings • Herbs • Metaphysical Arts • Mysterious Objects • Pagan History • Pagan Poetry • Palm Reading • Poetry About Life • Prophecies • Rites & Rituals • Romantic Poetry • Strange Creatures • Strange Places • The Gypsy Speaks • Unexplained Events • Witchcraft The Gypsy Thread site is a place where expression, investigation, interpretation, and opinion all collide.
It's my collection of the unexplained, esoteric, magickal, and essential. In order to truly survive and thrive in the yule log we live in, each one of us must take the bold step to tell yule log world who we are and what we believe in. I choose to leave my footprint in the world with written works.
