Yule Log

Yule Log: A traditional French bûche de Noël always looks just the right side of cutely enchanting, and there is nothing hard to like about its tender, melting chocolatiness. But I warm to it most of all for the rich pagan symbolism: it is no less than a cake-emulation of the log that the Norsemen would drag home through the streets to burn in celebration of the winter solstice and to honour the gods and hope, thus, to cajole from them a good year to come.

Simmer-&-stir Christmas cake

The best Christmas cake recipe I have tried. It was a great success last year and I look forward to trying it again this year. I used brandy and let it mature for about 8 weeks feeding it more brandy every now and again.
