Yule Log

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrated. I thought I would share a photo from ours. My dad made this yule log for Christmas dinner. He says he made it once 30 years ago, but I don’t remember it. I think it looks gorgeous. The cake was very moist, but he used a prune filling that had some liqueur in it and I didn’t care for that. The mushrooms were light and yummy though.

    It’s beautiful! I made one as a gift this year. Always a show stopper. I decorate mine with a sprigs of my Christmas tree. It also helps the mushrooms stand up.
    Happy New Year to you! Cheers!

    Sounds great. I think I would add some holly to it if I were making it. What kind of filling did you use?
