Mocha Yule Log
Total TimePrep: 65 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. + cooling
I made this for dessert for Christmas dinner and everyone LOVED it. I used espresso powder instead of coffee granules in the filling and the taste was so rich and delicious. I am going to use the filling recipe to make filled cupcakes with a ganache topping. Thanks for the easy, beautiful and delicious recipe.
This cake turned out just amazing and even thought the list of ingredients was longer than my usual max. I gave it a try and was so pleased with the results. The sponge was amazing and moist, the filling was just to die for and the icing was superb! I followed the directions which were very easy and I think my cake came out prettier than the one pictured with the recipe. It was my first rolled cake and it wasn't the least bit intimidating! It was actually a fun adventure with a very happy ending. The combination of flavors was ingenious! SO GOOD!!!
I simply cannot say enough about how stunning, achievable and wonderfully delicious this recipe was. Chocolatey, light and tender cake swaddled in layers of mocha frosting with that perfect balance of fudgey-ness, smoothness and firmness -- it won over us all, even those who aren't that enthused over coffee. This recipe captivated us with its presentation - which was so easy assemble - and the overwhelming perfection of flavor and texture.
I did it! I'm so proud of myself! I made this for Christmas, and I live at 4,500 feet and it still worked. It was spongy creamy yummness. StefaniBuhajla, your daughter was my inspiration. And, I will definitely be making this again next year!
My 17 year old daughter wanted to try her hand at a Yule log for our family celebration. It was a challenge for someone new to baking but, she followed the recipe exactly and it was fantastic! I can't tell you how much everyone raved about it. I wish we could post pictures here because it wasn't just scrumptious, it was gorgeous! I have the picture of my daughter's creation using this recipe over at pinterest! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/47921183511113452/
I have never rated a recipe before, but I made an account just to do that. It is so good! It came out picture perfect and it was delicious. There is literally nothing I would change. I made meringue cookie mushrooms to go on top to make it look cute!
EXCELLENT!!!!!! My Belgian husband and I loved this and I just added this to my recipe box. Definitely my "go to" cake recipe for Xmas. Thank you
One word - YUMMY. Made for dessert for our family Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. Definitely a keeper.
I made this Yule log twice, the first time was to make sure it turned out/tasted good. It did and was. So the second time I made this was for thanksgiving dessert. I doubled the frosting the first time because I didn't want to run out-that was not needed, because I had plenty of frosting. The second time I made it-I doubled the mocha filling-which is the best part! The log was a bit flatter-due to the extra filling, but once iced it held together well! This dessert is pretty and tastes delish, everyone who tried it really enjoyed it too!
This was a great recipe, got rave reviews from everyone.
