Chocolate Yule Log

Chocolate Yule Log

2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 tablespoon self-rising flour
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 tablespoon hot water
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
6 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons evaporated milk – approximately
2 tablespoons cocoa – approximately

Beat eggs. Add each ingredient following, beating well. Grease and flour pans (or line with greased proof paper).

Bake at 425 for 7 to 8 minutes.

Turn onto sugared paper. Roll up with the paper inside and leave to cool.

Make icing by beating the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy.

Add the milk and mix well. Take 1/2 of the icing away, and add the cocoa to that batch.

When the roll is cool, unroll and spread most of the white icing saving a little to do the ends of the log.

Roll up firmly and ice the outside with chocolate icing first. Then, use the remaining white icing on the ends.

This is served traditionally at Yule time (Winter Solstice) in Pagan cultures, also during Christmas time in France.
