Yule Log (Buche De Noel) Mccall's Cooking School

35 mins (prep 20, cooking 15)
9 ingredients
10 servings
I cut this recipe out of the December 1973 (the month my DS was born) issue of McCall's magazine. If you're a chocolate lover and love to impress people with your artistry, this is the recipe for you! A lot of directions but don't be intimidated, it's actually quite easy. And my kids LOVE it! (Cooking time does not include chilling times.) EDITED TO ADD: After seeing all these lovely photos, I feel like my more simple version looks "under dressed"... I sprinkle powdered sugar over the un-iced "log" and serve whipped cream on the side of each slice.
