Allergy Safe Yule Log

Meet the allergy safe yule log – it is completely dairy, nut and egg free. This is what happens when family members have food allergies and another family member is desperate to cook a Christmas tradition.

Many years ago, before I was diagnosed with food allergies, we cooked to accommodate my nephew’s allergies. His mom, my sister, found the most fabulous cookbook – What’s to Eat? The Milk-free, Egg-free, Nut-free Food Allergy Cookbook by Linda Marienhoff Coss. Click here to buy this amazing book.

That year when Christmas rolled around my other sister desperately wanted to have a yule log. Out comes the amazing cookbook and a yule log is born.

The cake was made with the Chocolate Layer Cake recipe, the filling was the recipe for Chocolate Tofu Mousse and we made a simple chocolate icing for the top.

Mushrooms were created not with egg whites meringue as they normally would but with Kraft Marshmallows – melted in the microwave at various times and pulled/stretched into various shapes. All in all this was the single most delicious part of the holiday.

If you’d like the recipe, drop me a line and let me know and I can get you a copy – otherwise just buy a copy of the book, I promise you’ll enjoy everything in there!
