Buche de Noel Yule Log, slightly adapted from Martha Stewart's Birch de Noel

Buche de Noel Yule Log

I try to make this cake. Buche de Noel Yule Log, from Martha Stewart’s 2003 Christmas Book, every Christmas Season. She calls it Birch de Noel, and I always thought it was fitting because up “Nord” here in Minnesota, all the logs are blanketed in snow through the winter season. You betcha! I guess it appeals to the realist in me, though this dessert is pure fantasy!

Coconut Tres Leches Cake

My brother reminds me now and then that any dessert that isn’t chocolate is just a waste of calories. I think I may have very well proved him wrong with this Coconut Tres Leches Cake with Caramelized Bananas, and proving my brother wrong is something that happens once a decade or so…if that! Sorry, bro, you know I love you!
