Seasons Greetings (and a Buche de Noel) from the Monday Morning Cooking Club…

To all our dear friends,

Thanks for supporting and following us over the last couple of years – we have AMAZING things planned for the new year!!

We wish all of you the very best for the holiday season, and a wonderful, happy and healthy year in 2014.

One of our all-time-favourite Monday Morning Cooking Club recipes is the Buche de Chocolat (which we conveniently call a Buche de Noel at this time of year!!). The recipe is in the book, but we’ve reprinted it here so you can make it RIGHT NOW. We’ve also included a little 1 minute ‘how to’ video at the bottom.

Happy cooking, and happy holidays to all!

Lisa and the MMCC gals xx

    Hi Lisa & gals,
    Do you think I can substitute the whipping cream for Hadar, maybe use a little less sugar?
    This is the only way I can think of to make it parev.
    Any suggestions?
    Happy holidays!

    Hi Shelly
    Apologies for the slow response here! If you are happy using Hadar as a substitute for whipped cream (thinking taste and texture), then go right ahead. The cream is an important part of the cake, so if you like Hadar then it should be fine. I haven’t used it before so I am unable to really judge – sorry :(
    Perhaps you could cut the cake in half (crossways) instead of rolling it, and spread one half with a little raspberry jam and a thin layer of Hadar (whipped) and then put the other half of the cake on top. Sprinkle the top with cocoa powder and cut into squares to serve. That way the cream becomes less important and it may just do the trick.
    Hope this helps!
