Hello friends! The Confidante Miami Beach released a recipe for their holiday Eggnog Yule Log! I can't quite make it down to Miami to try it at their restaurant, Bird & Bone, but I'm really looking forward to trying it for Christmas Day dessert!

Ingredients (Yields 12 servings):

  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 5 large eggs
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sunflower oil
  • 3 tsp bourbon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Filling:

  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • 2 cups pastry cream
  • 2 cup Ganache
  • ⅓ cup dark chocolate
  • Meringue Mushrooms to decorate

Process:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line 2 half sheet trays with parchment paper, spray with cooking spray.
  • Sift flour into a medium bowl add baking powder, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. Whisk to combine.
  • On a double boiler combine the eggs, brown sugar and salt, whisk until warm.
  • Transfer to a stand mixer, whisk on medium speed for 5 minutes until foamy and light, turn to high speed until ribbony and thick.
  • Reduce speed to medium, drizzle oil followed by the booze and vanilla. Sprinkle flour and gently incorporate the dry ingredients.
  • Spread on baking sheets and bake until it feels firm to the touch about 15 min, take out and cover with aluminum foil immediately.
  • Cool down at room temperature.
  • Filling and shaping the cake:
  • Combine all filling ingredients and warm to spreadable consistency.
  • Remove the foil from the cake, spoon the filling evenly on to the cake leaving 1in margin all around the edges.
  • Roll the cake starting from the long side using the parchment paper, position the rolled up cake seam side down.
  • Cover the surface with more Ganache.
  • Refrigerate until ganache has hardened.
  • Cut 3 to 4in pieces on a bias.
  • Decorate with meringue mushrooms.
