The Best Coffee-Infused Mocha Chocolate Yule Log Recipe – Ever


If you’re looking for a warm and cozy recipe for the holidays, Burnbrae Farms’ Nestlaid shell eggs were my go-to for making this delicious Mocha Chocolate Yule Log. The eggs come from hens who are fed a diet of whole grains and are always fresh.  Try this coffee-infused light and airy sponge, it’s pretty incredible!

5 large Burnbrae Farms Nestlaid Eggs separated
1/2 cup cake flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1-1/2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1/3 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1 tablespoon brewed coffee, cooled
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 – 3 tablespoons 2% milk


  1. Place egg whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°. Line bottom of a greased 15x10x1-in. pan with parchment; grease parchment. Sift flour, cocoa and salt together twice.
  3. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks until slightly thickened. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating on high speed until thick and lemon-coloured. Fold in flour mixture.
  4. Add cream of tartar to egg whites; with clean beaters, beat on medium until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until sugar is dissolved.
    (Optional, add a shot of espresso to the mix to make it even more coffee flavoured!
  5. Continue beating until soft glossy peaks form. Fold a fourth of the whites into the batter, then fold in the remaining whites. Transfer to prepared pan, spreading evenly.
  6. Bake until top springs back when lightly touched, 12-15 minutes (do not overbake). Cool 5 minutes. Invert onto a tea towel dusted lightly with cocoa. Gently peel off parchment. Roll up cake in the towel jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. For the filling, in a bowl, dissolve coffee granules in cream; beat until it begins to thicken. Add sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Unroll cake; spread filling over cake to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up again, without towel; trim ends. Transfer to a platter, seam side down. Refrigerate, covered, until cold.
  8. For the frosting, beat all ingredients until smooth. Spread over cake. Using a fork, make lines in frosting to resemble tree bark. Refrigerate until serving.
