A Low FODMAP Christmas Dinner & A Recipe For Sage & Spring Onion Stuffing

A Low FODMAP Christmas Dinner & A Recipe For Sage & Spring Onion Stuffing

I made this one last year using Mary Berry’s recipe. Omit the sherry and cranberry sauce too. I admit defeat when it comes to Christmas pudding, but I have some alternative suggestions for that special after dinner treat and will be posting a recipe for a quick microwave chocolate sponge pudding next week

 Seeing as Prince George is a pretty important chap, I think we can deduce that the Chocolate Log (Chocolate Roulade, Yule Log, Buche de Noel) is also to be held in high esteem

When it gets to this point, remove it from the heat and add the chocolate, broken into pieces. I was originally going to make Nigella’s Yule Log but after seeing The Great British Bake Off Christmas special, I liked the look of Mary Berry’s much more

I used a Mary Berry recipe which you can find here. Bring half the cream to the boil in a small saucepan then remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate broken into pieces

I messed with a Mary Berry recipe…. For the chocolate ganache topping. I decided to try my hand at a Yule log… I’ve never made one before and know if I made one for home I would sit and eat the lot myself which, is never a good idea for a dieter

Bûche de Noël (Yule Log)

After watching the Great British Bake Off Christmas Special with Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood showing us some of their favourite Christmas bakes, I just had to make Mary Berry's Bûche de Noël

Mary Berry's Yule log. The  book contained two very different Yule logs/Buche Noel which   were different again from the one Mary made on the Christmas edition of Great British Bake Off

Of course if you wanted to make this more indulgent and turn it into a Yule log then I think a generous slathering of white chocolate buttercream would work very well

Ingredients - adapted from 'Sweet Treats & Puds' by Mary Berry. Finally for pink there was a raspberry Neapolitan cake made by Becki which was huge, sadly I didn't get to try a piece as I was too full by the time I'd tried all of the others

Jane used a Mary Berry recipe to make her Ginger & Treacle Traybake. Clare tested out a new icing technique on us with this gold dusted effect Spiced Orange & Cranberry Cake

I did quite a bit of Christmas baking, including chocolate chip biscotti, Hershey's kisses thumbprint cookies,  Mary Berry's chocolate yule log, reindeer cake pops, Bailey's chocolate luxe cheesecake, and these blue cheese, parmesan and green olive bread sticks, which were dunked in a baked camembert as our starter on Christmas day

Merry Christmas Everyone!

My only deviation from the recipe was I decided to swap the listed whipped cream centre for a chocolate mousse, which I made from melted chocolate and whisked egg whites
