Buche de Noel/Yule log

6 eggs
1 c flour
3/4 c sugar
1 t vanilla

Seperate whites & yolks. Mix sugar with yolks. Add vanilla & flour bit by bit, stirring constantly. Beat egg whites until firm & fold into the yolk mixture.

Cover a 15 1/4"x10 1/4"x3/4" cookie sheet with a layer of waxed paper & pour batter over it. Bake in 375* oven for 20 min. During this time prepare the filling. The cake must be soft so it can be rolled. Spread a piece of waxed paper on the table & turn the cooked cake over so that it falls on it. Spread a layer of the filling over the entire surface of the cake & then roll it into a log. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Can frost the log with more filling.

Cream filling:
2 sticks of butter (not margarine)
2 egg yolks
1/2 c water
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c cocoa

Soften butter by whipping with a fork. Add it to beaten egg yolks & mix well. It should look like cream. Prepare a syrup by heating sugar & water to boiling point. Allow syrup to cool before adding it to cream mixture. Whip with fork. Add cocoa & spread on cake as directed above.
