Popularized by the bakers of Paris in the 1800’s, Bûche de Noël is the French name for this famous log-shaped Christmas cake. The yule log tradition began in the Iron Age – not a time generally associated with pastry arts.

Prior to the medieval era families and villages gathered on the winter solstice to burn an actual log adorned in holly, pinecones and ivy, and anointed with wine and salt. This was done to usher in Spring, and to cleanse the air of the past year’s events.

As the tradition made its way into Christianity, the term “yule log” became more associated with a Swiss roll style of sponge cake shaped like a log, covered in bark-textured chocolate buttercream, and adorned with marzipan and meringue decorations.

The earliest recipes for the yule log cakes date back to the 17th century, making this is one of the longest running Christmas food traditions. Celebrate the season, the coming of longer days and a happy new year with our Bûche de Noël as the centerpiece of your Christmas dinner! Order today!
