Kormos Log Cake With Biscuits

Kormos in Greek means tree log and has been named after its shape. A very easy dessert even a child can make it. This one was done by my daughter.


1 ½ packet of butter,
1 egg,
3 cups of sugar powder,
4 spoonful of cocoa,
3½ packets of plain morning biscuits
½ wine glass of brandy,
½ tin of evaporated milk and ½ water,
2 vanillas
250 gr., of walnuts chopped
(optional ingredients: raisins, dried fruit, spoon sweets, almonds, coconut, etc.)


1. Leave butter outside fridge for 2 hours to soften.
2. Beat butter with mixer until white.
3. Add cocoa and sugar and continue beating.
4. Add vanillas, egg and walnuts (we leave some to put on top) and continue to mix.
5. Put milk, water and brandy in a bowl and wet biscuits, then break into small pieces and add to the butter mixture. Mix well.
6. We cut a big piece of aluminum foil and put the mixture giving it a salami shape.
7. Sprinkle with the walnuts. Roll and fold.
8. Put in a platter and place in deep freeze for a couple of hours before serving.
