Fruitty Log Cake!

30 mins to prepare and 40 mins to cook Ingredients: For the sponge 110g caster sugar 110g unsalted butter, softened 110g self-raising flour, sifted 2 large eggs 1tsp vanilla extract For the crème patisserie 150ml milk 1 vanilla pod, split lengthwise 2 medium egg yolks 25g caster sugar 10g plain flour 10g cornflour For the fruit filling 100ml sherry 4 kiwi fruit, peeled and diced 1 orange, peeled, skin removed and segmented 200g canned diced pineapple, drained 40g apricot jam, warmed 50g desiccated coconut 2 star fruit, sliced (if available) vanilla pods, to garnish 1) Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 11 inch x 16 inch jelly roll pan. 2) In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the sponge using an electric hand-held whisk until smooth; 1-2 minutes. Spread into the lined jelly roll pan and bake for 12-15 minutes until springy to the touch. 3) Remove and let it cool a little in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely; leave any parchment paper attached to the base at this point. 4) Meanwhile, prepare the crème patisserie; place the split vanilla pod and milk in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Set to one side to cool a little. In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until pale and thick and then sift in the flour and cornflour. Whisk until smooth. Pour the milk and vanilla onto this mixture, whisking all the time. 5) Transfer back to the saucepan and cook on a medium heat for about a minute, until it thickens. Transfer to a clean bowl and cover the surface with clingfilm. Refrigerate until assembly in the fridge. Lay the cake on a flat surface and drizzle the sherry evenly all over. 6) Spread the crème patisserie evenly on top using a palette knife. Dot all over with the orange segments, kiwi fruit and diced pineapple. Roll up into a tight log shape, peeling away the greaseproof paper as you do so. 7) Spread the outside of the log with the warmed apricot jam, then sprinkle the desiccated coconut all over so that it sticks to the log in an even layer. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish the top of the log cake with sliced star fruit (if available) and vanilla pods.

I was in a baking mood and decided to try to make these! They came out good for my first time 😁😁 I'll post my recipes below if you'd like to try and make them. If you'd like the recipe, message me 😘 My bun recipe: -200g milk (Lukewarm) -5g active dry yeast -30g sugar --240g bread flour -60g all purpose flour -30g butter (room temp) -Egg wash Step 1: put lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Whisk and set aside for 5min Step 2: in a separate bowl, combine bread flour and all purpose flour. Then add milk mixture. Add a pinch of salt and knead dough Step 3: after dough can take ball form, knead in the room temp butter. Knead until butter is fully incorporated. After incorporated, put in a lightly greased bowl cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 30-40 min. Step 4: after 30-40 mins, take dough out. It should have doubled in size. Put flour on your finger and poke the middle of the dough. If it first bounce back, declare the air from dough and cut in 8 equal pieces. Form in to balls and set aside on a baking sheet for 10-15 mins. Make sure to cover with a lightly dampened cloth. Step 5: cut two areas on the doughball across from each other in a diagonal direction. Egg was the parts you cut in to. Sprinkle with sugar cover them again with a lightly dampened cloth and let them rest for 30 mins - an hour. They will double in size again Step 6: bake in an oven preheated to 400° for 10-12 mins and you're done! Chocolate pudding filling: -2 egg yolks -2 1/2 tbsp sugar -1 tbsp all purpose flour -1 1/2 tbsp corn starch -1 tbsp coco powder -200ml milk (hot) -2 tbsp butter -30g chocolate. I used four squares of semi sweet chocolate Step 1: whisk egg yolks and sugar together. In separate bowl, combine flour, corn starch and coco powder. Add mixture to yolk mixture and whisk together. Step 2: slowly add hot milk to the chocolate yolk mixture. When fully combined. Put yolk mixture through a strainer into a pot. Out put on burner and set to medium heat. Continuously whisk until mixture thickens to pudding consistency. Step 3: take off heat immediately and add butter and chocolate. Continue mixing until chocolate and butter mix in. Step 4: place plastic wrap directly on pudding and put in fridge to cool. After it cools, mix it again and add to piping bag.
