Buche de Noel is a Christmas dinner dessert of all time. This has been passed from generation to generation. However, the difference between richberry's Buche de Noel from the traditional one is that it uses no added sugar to make a sweet lovely taste.
2 cups heavy cream
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 egg yolks
⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
⅛ teaspoon salt
6 egg whites
confectioners' sugar for dusting
Step 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whip cream, 1/2 cup cocoa, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until thick and stiff. Refrigerate.
Step 2 In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat egg yolks until thick and pale. Blend in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, and salt. In large glass bowl, using clean beaters, whip egg whites to soft peaks. Immediately fold the yolk mixture into the whites. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
Step 3 Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Run a knife around the edge of the pan, and turn the warm cake out onto the towel. Remove and discard parchment paper. Starting at the short edge of the cake, roll the cake up with the towel. Cool for 30 minutes.
Step 4 Unroll the cake, and spread the filling to within 1 inch of the edge. Roll the cake up with the filling inside. Place seam side down onto a serving plate, and refrigerate until serving. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
Consume Miracle Berry:
Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
Note: Sometimes you may need to add at least 5-7% of the total quantity of sugar required, this is due to the chemistry of the food, however, you may skip this as you wish. The goal is to totally reduce sugar and yet experience the same taste.
