  • 80 grams Glacé ginger
  • 100 grams hazelnuts
  • 100 grams wafer biscuits, not cream filled, plain biscuits

Recipe's preparation

    Log Base
  1. Process cherries, ginger, hazelnuts and biscuits on Turbo 2-3 times until roughly crushed. Set aside.

  2. Make Ganache. Grate chocolate for 6 seconds on speed 9.

  3. Then add cream and cook for 5 minutes at 60°C onspeed3.

  4. Put in the fridge until thickened considerably. The freezer will of course fast-track this process. (Best to make when mixture can be left in the TM Bowl to thicken)

  5. Fold the crushed nuts and wafers and glace fruit into the chocolate mixture by mixing for 4-5 seconds, reverse, speed 3-4.

  6. Form mixture into log shape (use a loaf tin if this helps) and place in fridge to set overnight, or in the freezer for approx. 2 hours.

  7. Icing
  8. Make the icing by grating 200g chocolate for 6 seconds on speed 9.

  9. Then add copha and mix for 5 minutes at 60°C onspeed 3.

  10. Leave this to firm a little in the fridge (or freezer to fast track it!). It doesn’t take long! When thick but still pourable, cover the log thickly with the icing mixture.

  11. Mark the log with lines using a fork until it sets enough to give texture. This layer is up to 1cm thick including  the sides.

  12. Decorate as you wish, with flowers or coconut or any other ideas.
