In this article, we’ll provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to make the Yule Log Android App, as well as tips, variations, and frequently asked questions.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, for dusting
  • 1 sprig of holly, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 10×15-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper and lightly grease.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Beat in the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter, being careful not to overmix.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. While the cake is still warm, dust a clean kitchen towel with powdered sugar. Carefully invert the cake onto the towel and remove the parchment paper. Roll the cake, with the towel, into a tight spiral and let cool completely.
  8. In a medium bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and heavy cream and beat until smooth.
  9. Carefully unroll the cooled cake and spread the buttercream evenly over the top. Roll the cake back into a tight spiral and transfer to a serving platter.
  10. Dust the top of the cake with powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Garnish with a sprig of holly, if desired.
  11. Chill the cake in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. Slice and enjoy!

Tips

  • Be sure to beat the egg yolks and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy to create a light and airy cake.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I freeze the Yule Log Android App?
Yes, you can freeze the cake before frosting it. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before frosting and serving.

What if I don’t have a jelly roll pan?
You can use a 9×13-inch baking dish instead, but the cake will be thicker and may take longer to bake. Adjust the baking time as needed.

Why do I need to invert the cake onto a towel?
Inverting the cake onto a towel helps prevent it from sticking to the parchment paper and makes it easier to roll into a spiral.

Personal Thoughts

The Yule Log Android App is a delicious and festive dessert that’s perfect for the holiday season. I love the combination of chocolate cake and buttercream frosting, and the dusting of powdered sugar and cocoa powder adds a beautiful touch. I highly recommend making this dessert for your next holiday party or family gathering. Your guests will be impressed!
