If we look forward to Christmas, it's not only for the gifts! And yes, even the Christmas meal is a long awaited moment to spend a moment, all at the table. The jokes of the uncle, the granny who asks for salt in spite of her hypertension problems and many other charms still make the specificity of this meal. However, one element puts everyone in agreement gustatively and emotionally speaking, it is the dessert. And it's not just any dessert, but the Yule log. That's why Kidlee has prepared not one, but two original Christmas log recipes to make with your family!
A log with Nutella
We start with the easiest log! It takes 20 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to cook, isn't that perfect? For 6 people, you will need :
- 200 g of Nutella
- 4 eggs
- 120 g powdered sugar
- 40 g of flour
- pinch of salt
If you have these ingredients, you can prepare the sponge cake. Then, you will just have to fill it with Nutella and roll it. Finally, you will have to cover it with a generous layer of Nutella. For even more deliciousness, you can add chocolate decorations. Now that you are convinced of the feasibility of this recipe, to have the detailed tutorial, it will be over here.
A recipe for an original Yule log in a lollipop
This recipe is a little more complicated but we guarantee it will be a hit with the kids! You will first need to bake a joconde cookie to have the base for your lollipops. For the latter, you will need :
- 75 g of powdered sugar
- 70 g almond powder
- 2 large eggs
- 25 g of wheat flour
- 60 g of egg whites
- 12 g powdered sugar
First, you'll need to mix the sugar and almond powder in one bowl and whisk the eggs in another bowl. Then add the sugar and almond powder and whisk for a long time to get a ribbon. Then add the sifted flour.
Beat the egg whites until stiff, then merge them with the powdered sugar. Then, add them delicately to the preparation with a flexible spatula.
Pour the dough onto a silicone baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 °C.
For the cream, you can follow that of the original recipe, here. But you can also change it up! If it's easier for you to put back the spread, it works. And even if you want to make a mascarpone whipped cream with yuzu! We believe in your culinary skills and creativity.
Anyway, now that you have your cookie and cream, comes the assembly part.
You will have to cut your cookie with circles of 6,5 cm, approximately. Then, make the lollipops with the cream you have chosen in the center and let them set in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. When it's time to serve, decorate with Smarties or m&m's.
Making log recipes with your babysitter
The recipes proposed here are simple and quick to make, they can also be made in the form of a cooking workshop with his or her baby sitter. Of course, the parents must give their permission beforehand. Turning an afternoon into a fun cooking workshop with your nanny or babysitter is very beneficial for the child's learning and development. Especially when it comes to assimilating the notions of taste or the names of the different ingredients! And finally, you will have a delicious log for the snack.
