We can't stop thinking about this Yule Log. It was ridiculously delicious and indulgent. No, it's not healthy. But it's Christmas!

Ingredients
Method

Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 cup wholegrain self raising flour
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • pinch salt
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) olive oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 240ml almond milk

Icing

  • 2.5 cups dairy-free butter
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa powder

Method

  1. 1.

    Grease a baking tray (lined with parchment paper) with olive oil

  2. 2.

    Pour the flours, sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt into a food processor and whizz them together so everything is well blended

  3. 3.

    Add the oil, vinegar, vanilla extract and water to the food processor and mix together to form a cake batter

  4. 4.

    Pour the mixture into the prepared sheet pan and bake for 20-25 minutes at 190’C

  5. 5.

    Take the cake out of the oven (the cake should spring back to the original shape when pressed lightly in the middle) and let it cool to room temperature

  6. 6.

    Cut the cake into 3 parts, one part should be slightly bigger to use as the base. Stack on top of each other and stick the slices together using the icing. Cut the edges of the cake until it starts to look 'log-shaped'.

  7. 7.

    Coat with icing, use a skewer or a fork to create the look of bark. Dust with chocolate shavings, icing sugar and cocoa powder.
