Chocolate Yule Log

This chocolate cake roll is filled with whipped cream and covered in a simple chocolate orange ganache. It is surprisingly easy to make, roll and fill!

The humble Chocolate Yule Log ? A soft chocolate genoise sponge filled with homemade whipped cream and rolled to reveal the perfect swirl. Covered in a four ingredient chocolate ganache, it looks like a tree, but it tastes like heaven!
