NOTE: This recipe continues on after making our Gluten Free Chocolate Swiss Role (Make our Swiss Role and then come here for adding the icing to make it a Yule Log.)


To make Butter-Cream centre:

  1. Blend together the butter / margarine and icing sugar, until smooth.
  2. Spread evenly over the sponge and roll it up.

To make the Fudge Icing:

  1. Break the dark chocolate into pieces and place in a bowl with the butter.
  2. Place the bowl over hot water or in a microwave (1 minute, full power) to melt the chocolate and butter.
  3. Stir until smooth, then gradually beat in sifted icing sugar (It will be quite stiff).
  4. Beat in the milk and then leave to cool, stirring occasionally, until spreadable.
  5. Spread the fudge icing over the top of the cake with a palette knife. Run the prongs of a fork along the icing to resemble bark on a log.
  6. Finish by dusting with icing sugar lightly over the cake if required.
