To serve for an elegant dessert on a loaf dish, or even as a yule log cake for Christmas, why not an easy and tasty tiramisu?
It can be done in advance which is quite interesting. I suggest the tiramisu in a mold and unmold it on a plate before serving and sprinkled with cocoa powder.
I know that you’re going to tell me that a tiramisu is not French, but the French absolutely love tiramisu, and Italy is not that far away isn’t it? I grew up in French Alps just on the other side of the border. So as I’m starting to adapt traditional cakes into the shape of yule log for X’mas, I thought it would be a good idea.
By the way, if you’re interested in French Christmas traditions, I have 2 articles for you : One on traditional dishes we love to offer in France at Noël (that’s the French for Christmas), and another one on the origin and traditions of yule log cake (la bûche de Noël) through ages. Interesting.
