Orange and Hazelnut Yule Log Cake

Burning a yule log is a Christmas tradition that dates back before Medieval Times. Interestingly, the Yule log was initially an entire tree! Families would bring the trunk of the Yule tree inside their houses and stick the largest end into the fireplace to feed the fire over the 12 Days of Christmas. The Yule Log Cake, also known as a Bûche de Noël in French, originated from this old tradition.
