Yule Log 2008

Now this is a very late post considering it was cooked for Christmas dinner - but better late than never I say!

This isn't your ordinary yule log - it is completely dairy, nut and egg free. My nephew has severe food allergies, and my sister found the most fabulous cookbook - What's to Eat? The Milk-free, Egg-free, Nut-free Food Allergy Cookbook by Linda Marienhoff Coss. Click here to buy this amazing book.

So this Christmas rolls around and my other sister despirately wanted to have a yule log. Out comes the amazing cookbook - the cake was made with the Chocolate Layer Cake recipe, the filling was the recipe for Chocolate Tofu Mousse and they made a simple chocolate icing for the top. Mushrooms were created not with egg whites mirangue as they normally would but with Kraft Marshmallows - melted in the microwave at various times and pulled/stretched into various shapes. All in all this was the single most delicious part of the holiday.

If you'd like the recipe, drop me a line and let me know and I can get you a copy - otherwise just buy a copy of the book, I promise you'll enjoy everything in there!


  1. Wow! What a creative way to use two of my recipes! I'm so glad my cookbook helped your family to continue to enjoy a cherished family tradition -- in spite of your nephew's severe food allergies.

  2. Linda thank you so much for your post. My sister just bought your second book as well and we were enjoying the new recipes over the holidays as well. We really appreciate all your hard work in creating such great recipes.
