Yule Log Cake




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 17 x 12 inch baking pan with a non stick vegetable spray.
  2. Line the pan with parchment paper and then butter and flour the parchment paper or silpat.
  3. While the eggs are still cold, separate the eggs, placing the whites in one bowl and the yolks in another. Allow yolks and whites come to room temperature.
  4. Beat egg whites in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in the 1/4 cup granulated sugar until stiff peaks form.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks, mushrooms, and remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar until the batter has a thick consistency. Gently mix in flour until just blended.
  6. Gently fold egg yolk mixture into the beaten egg whites. Try not to deflate the egg whites.
  7. Pour the batter into your baking pan and using a spatula, evenly spread it out.
  8. Bake for about 12 minutes or until cake top springs back when lightly touched.
  9. Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool. Cover the cake with a clean, slightly damp towel.
