Christmas is never quite complete without the quintessential festive log cake. According to definitive culinary encyclopedia New Larousse Gastronomique, the Christmas Yule Log cake is a fairly recent creation (estimated to be after 1870) by “Parisian pastrycooks”, inspired by “the real logs that used to be burnt in the hearth throughout Christmas Eve”.
