5-Ingredient Bûche de Noël (Last-minute Christmas cake idea) - Video Recipe

Last-minute Christmas cake idea!!!


You just need 5 ingredients: eggs, flour, sugar, whipping cream, and cocoa powder! Toppings are optional. You can decorate it in the way you like ;)

Bûche de Noël

Difficulty: VERY Easy
Time: 1hr + cooling time

Necessary Equipment:
9-inch square brownie pan
electric mixer

((Sponge Cake))
3 eggs
5 tbsp. granulated sugar
5 tbsp. cake flour
((Chocolate Whipped Cream))
200ml whipping cream
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
fruits of your choice
cocoa powder or powdered sugar

1. In a bowl, place eggs and sugar. Beat on high speed with an electric mixer for about 10 minutes until white and fluffy.
2. Line the pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 180C (356F).
3. Sift in cake flour, half at a time, and mix on low speed with an electric mixer for a minute or two in total until just combined.
4. Pour the batter into the pan and drop it lightly on the counter to raise the air bubbles out of the batter.
5. Bake at 180C (356F) for about 12 minutes.
6. When it's done, drop the pan lightly to prevent shrinking.
7. Remove the sponge cake from the pan by lifting the parchment paper and place it on a wire rack to cool.
8. Meanwhile, combine whipping cream, granulated sugar, and cocoa powder in a dry, clean bowl. Float the bottom of the bowl in ice water, whisk the cream until firm peaks form.
9. When the cake is cool enough, remove the parchment paper. Cut off one end of the sponge cake diagonally.
10. Coat the surface of the sponge cake evenly with the cream. Place the cut side on the other side, and roll up the cake. Wrap the cake in the parchment paper and cool in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.
11. Cut off one end diagonally to make a stub. Coat the surface with the cream and place the stub on top. Then evenly coat with the cream and drag a fork through the cream to make a bark-like texture if you like.
12. Dust with powdered sugar to resemble snow or cocoa powder is okay. Garnish with some fruits if you like.
