The ingredients to make your Christmas log :
For 6 people:
- 200 g of Nutella
- 4 eggs
- 120 g powdered sugar
- 40 g flour
- 1 pinch of salt
The steps of the recipe for your Christmas log :
Preheat your oven to 180°C
Separate the whites from the yolks. Pour the powdered sugar with the yolks and whisk for a few minutes until the mixture whitens and becomes frothy. Add the sifted flour. Mix well to obtain a homogenous mixture.
Pour the egg whites into another bowl. Add a pinch of salt. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Gradually add them to the previous preparation. Mix gently using a maryse.
Place a baking sheet on a baking tray. Spread the dough on the sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
When the biscuit is well baked, remove it from the oven. Place it on a clean, damp cloth. Gently roll the biscuit up and let it take its shape for a few moments.
Carefully unroll the biscuit and coat it with the spread. Roll up again, tightly. Coat the log with the spread. Cut off the 2 ends of the rolled cake to get a perfect finish. Decorate as you wish.
Tip: For an even tastier Christmas rolled cake, you can flavour the biscuit with liquid vanilla and make a syrup to soak it. To do this, boil 3 cl of water, 2 cl of rum and 125 g of caster sugar until you obtain a syrup. Soak the sponge cake in cold syrup before covering it with Nutella.
