I made this for Christmas this year and the entire family loved it. My husband said it was the best dessert I had EVER made. I have to admit, however, that I was skeptical when I took it out of the oven..it seemed so thin, but it rolled up nicely. I scored it with a fork to make it look like a log. I only dusted it with powdered sugar added a few candied cherries for decoration. If you like chocolate, keep the recipe as is. It would be wonderful for anyone who has celiac disease, as it is gluten free. I know my family now expects this every year for Christmas!!
Now it's Easter...and my family want "the Buche" back..now, it's "Buche de Pacques"...I omitted the cocoa powder in the filling..so it was just vanilla. Then, I made more whipped cream and frosted the whole log and decorated with peeps and jelly beans on the side. It was awesome! Lighter and not as chocolatey as the Christmas version. "Best dessert in 20 years of marriage" raved my husband!
