Homemade Organic Mocha Yule Log Cake with Mini Meringue Mushrooms

This is a wonderful cake to make during the winter holiday season.  The cake is chocolate and the filling is coffee.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Make the Homemade Organic Mini Meringue Mushrooms, if using.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, beat the organic eggs.
  3. Add sugar and beat until the mixture is thick; Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, sift all of the dry ingredients.
  5. Into the egg mixture, fold in the sifted dry ingredients.
  6. Grease a heavy stainless steel 15x10x1″ baking pan with butter.
  7. Pour the batter into the greased baking pan and bake at 350° Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly pressed.
  8. Sprinkle a clean kitchen towel with cane sugar.
  9. When the cake is done, turn it onto the sugar lined towel.
  10. Roll the towel and the cake together making a layer of cake and a layer of towel.
  11. Wrap the towel tightly and place on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
  12. Make Homemade Organic Coffee Cream Frosting.
  13. Once the frosting is finished and the cake is cooled, unroll the cake carefully.
  14. Use half of the cream to evenly frost the cake where the towel once was; Reroll the cake.
  15. Frost the outside of the cake with the remaining frosting.
  16. Attach the Homemade Organic Mini Meringue Mushrooms, if using, to the outside of the cake.
  17. Sprinkle with chocolate curls and top with crushed pistachios (to look like moss), if desired.
  18. Chill for at least one hour, or until serving time.
  19. Slice crosswise into 1″ thick slices.
  20. Enjoy!
