Chocolate and Strawberry Jam Yule Log
Method
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Beat the egg yolks and 50 g of sugar in a mixer, using the whisk attachment, until the mixture becomes lighter in color and fluffy.
  • Melt the chocolate in a bain marie or a microwave. When it has melted and cooled, add to the egg yolk mixture and beat to combine.
  • In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites with the whisk attachment, on low speed. Add the salt and mix. Add the 30 g of sugar. Increase the speed and beat until you create a meringue.
  • Combine ¼ the meringue with the egg yolk mixture to make the mixture lighter and fluffier. Add the remaining meringue in 3 batches and gently fold in with a spatula. It’s alright if there are a few parts where the meringue has not been completely incorporated. You do not want to overmix.
  • Line a 30x40 cm baking pan with parchment paper. Grease the parchment with butter and dust with cocoa powder so the mixture does not stick.
  • Spread mixture into pan and bake for 15-17 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and cover with a damp towel. Set aside to cool like this so that the sponge cake does not dry out and it will be easier to roll.
  • Prepare the filling by beating the heavy cream and sugar in a mixer until they become whipped cream. When ready, add the marmalade or jam and mix to distribute.
  • Prepare the ganache coating by heating the heavy cream in a saucepan and then pouring it over the chopped chocolate.
  • Stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth and completely combined. Set aside for a few minutes so it can cool.
  • Cut the edges off of the sponge cake. They are crunchy and will be difficult to roll.
  • Spread the filling over the sponge cake. Leave a 4-5 cm border on the opposite end of the side you are going to start rolling.
  • Roll into a log. You can cut off 2 pieces to use for decorative purposes.
  • Spread the ganache over the log and decorate in any way you like.
  • Drag a fork over the log to give it the appearance of an actual tree log.
