Disney Dining

A day at Disneyland is one filled with fun, excitement, and magic. Memorable moments from your stay at Disneyland are bound to include thrilling rides, life-like characters, majestic fireworks, and stunning parades and shows. And the amazing thing about Disneyland is that the magic flows nonstop throughout your day - even during mealtime! In fact, mealtimes might be right at the top of your memorable moments list! Remember the first time you ever tried the Monte Cristo sandwich at Café Orleans, or the Spicy Beef Skewers at the Bengal Barbecue? And let's not forget the amazing Cinnamon Rolls at the Blue Ribbon Bakery. And who could pass up a refreshing Mint Julep from the Mint Julep Bar?

I'm sure by now you are reminiscing about your favorite Disneyland meals and treats. Well, the good news is that you don't have to go all the way to Disneyland to enjoy many of your favorite Disneyland foods. This lens contains authentic recipes from Disneyland Park that you can duplicate and enjoy at home!

Most of these Disneyland recipes are from recipe cards that were handed out upon request at City Hall on Main Street USA in Disneyland. Others were printed in Disney Newsletters and Magazines over the years, and a few were even printed in local newspapers. I've done my best to ensure that these recipes are authentic so that you can recreate a piece of Disneyland in your own kitchen. Happy cooking!

Chocolate and Coffee Yule Log

Disneyland Holiday Recipe

Makes 1 – 15 inch Yule Log


Kahlúa Simple Syrup
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
3 tablespoons Kahlúa Liqueur

Biscuit Roulade
1/2 cup pastry flour or all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder, sifted
1/4 cup cocoa, sifted
4 egg yolks, room temperature
1 cup sugar, divided
4 egg whites, room temperature

Coffee Buttercream
1 cup water, divided
3 tablespoons coffee grinds
1 cup fine granulated sugar
5 large egg whites, room temperature
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, cold and cubed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Chocolate Ganache
11 ounces dark chocolate (58% cacao)
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons honey
1 cup heavy whipping cream


For Kahlúa Simple Syrup:
1. Place the granulated sugar and water in a small sauce pan over medium heat and whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and add the Kahlúa.
2. Stir to combine and allow syrup to cool completely.

For Biscuit Roulade:
1. Preheat oven to 375º F. Butter and flour a 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Line bottom with parchment paper. Butter and flour parchment paper also.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, and cocoa in a small mixing bowl, set aside.
3. Beat egg yolks in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes, or until thick and lemon colored. Gradually add 1/2 cup of the sugar, beating on high speed till the sugar is dissolved. Thoroughly wash and dry the beaters.
4. Beat egg whites in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 5 minutes, or until soft peaks form. Slowly add the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, beating on medium speed till stiff peaks form.
5. Carefully fold egg yolk mixture into the egg whites, using a rubber spatula. Once all the egg yolk mixture has been incorporated, sprinkle the flour mixture over the egg mixture and fold in gently just to combine.
6. Spread batter evenly into the prepared jelly-roll pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly touched near the center.
7. Lay out a clean, thin cotton kitchen towel on a work surface; dust with confectioners’ sugar on the top, set aside.
8. Immediately after removing the cake from the oven, loosen the edges of the cake from the pan using a knife.
9. Turn cake out onto the sugared kitchen towel, parchment paper side up. Carefully pull off the parchment paper.
10. Fold towel over the longest side of the cake and roll up the cake with the towel inside.
11. Cool on a rack with the seam side down.

For Coffee Buttercream:
1. Bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Remove from heat and add coffee grinds; allow to steep for 5 minutes. Strain through a coffee filter into a small bowl and set coffee concentrate aside.
2. Mix the remaining 1/2 cup of water and sugar in a heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Clip a candy thermometer to the pan and heat to 240º, soft-ball stage (18-20 minutes). Keep the edge of the saucepan clean by brushing it with a pastry brush moistened with water as needed.
3. Once the temperature reaches 240º, remove the candy thermometer and remove from heat.
4. Beat egg whites in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 5 minutes, or until soft peaks form. Gradually pour the hot mixture in a thin stream over the whites while continuing to beat the mixture for 2-3 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed and continue to beat until a meringue forms.
5. Add the butter all at once, and beat on medium speed until incorporated. Increase speed to high and continue beating for 8-10 minutes, or until smooth and shiny. Add vanilla extract and coffee concentrate, mix for one minute until combined. Set aside.

For Chocolate Ganache:
1. Place the chocolate, butter, and honey in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
2. Heat the whipping cream in a small saucepan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, or until it begins to boil. Remove from heat and pour cream into the chocolate mixture. Whisk until smooth.
3. Set aside and allow the ganache to come to room temperature.

To Assemble:
1. Unroll cake, remove towel. Using a pastry brush, “baste” the cake with the Kahlúa simple syrup.
2. Evenly spread the coffee buttercream over cake to within 1 inch of the edges. Re-roll the cake to form the “log.” Place, seam-side down, on a serving platter.
3. Spread the chocolate ganache over the top and sides of the cake.
4. Score ganache with the tines of a fork to resemble the bark on a log.
5. Decorate as desired and refrigerate for an hour to let the ganache set.

Cook’s Notes: Make sure you butter and flour the parchment paper after putting it on the jelly-roll pan. This will make it easier to remove the paper from the cake when cooked.
Always thoroughly clean and dry your electric mixer beaters before using them for another procedure-especially when working with egg whites. If the beaters have any residue or water on them, the egg whites will not form as needed.
You can decorate the Yule Log with meringue mushrooms, flowers, and leaves.

mixture and blend well. Gradually add flour and knead until smooth. Place in
a very large greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double
in size. Punch down and let rise again for second time.

palm of your hand and gently pack the roll (this keeps it from coming apart
during baking).

Place each roll in a buttered baking pan and allow to rise in a warm place
for about 20 minutes. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until golden brown in
color, about 15-20 minutes. Frost rolls while still warm.

White Godiva, Dark Chocolate Celebration Recipe

Club 33

Chocolate Terrine:

1 oz. canola oil
12 oz. bittersweet chocolate (or Hershey Bar)*
8 1/2 oz. unsalted butter, cubed
4 large eggs, separated
4 large egg yolks
1 1/2 c. confectioner’s sugar
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c. heavy cream
2 t. granulated sugar*

*If you use the Hershey Bar, do not add granulated sugar


Lightly oil a 12 x 4, 3-inch-high, terrine mold. Line with plastic wrap and set aside.

Find a metal bowl that fits comfortably in a saucepan.

Melt chocolate and butter together in the metal bowl over lightly simmering water (not boiling), stirring from time to time.

Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

When chocolate is warm enough to touch, stir in 8 egg yolks until well combined (you’ll know they’re well combined when the mixture is the same color throughout).

Sift in the confectioner’s sugar and cocoa powder, and stir with wooden spoon or rubber spatula.

Whip the heavy cream in a separate bowl until it forms soft peaks, then refrigerate. Beat the 4 egg whites and granulated sugar
together in another bowl till soft peaks form. (You can also use a stand mixer for this step.)

Fold in the egg whites and then fold in the cold whipping cream.

Pour your chocolate into the terrine mold and fold over the plastic wrap to cover the top.

Refrigerate for at least 24 hours (3 days is best).

When ready to serve, flip over terrine mold and the terrine should fall out (you can tug on the plastic to wiggle it out, if necessary). Remove the plastic and slice with a thin sharp knife that has been sitting in hot water. Wipe the knife after each slice. Serve each portion topped with White Godiva Vanilla Sauce (below).

White Godiva Vanilla Sauce:

1/2 c. sugar
5 large egg yolks
1 1/2 c. whole milk
2 T. vanilla extract
1/2 c. Godiva white chocolate liqueur


In a metal bowl, whisk sugar and egg yolks together.

Combine the milk and vanilla in a saucepan and bring to a boil (be careful not to let them scorch – check the bottom of the pan frequently with a wooden spoon).

Slowly pour ¼ cup of hot milk into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly.

Whisk the egg yolk mixture into the milk and return to heat.

Whisk in the liqueur and cook on low heat until first signs of boiling (stir constantly).

Quickly strain the sauce into a bowl and cover with plastic.

Place in refrigerator to cool.

    In the Big Thunder Ranch Cornbread recipe is "T" for tablespoon or teaspoon?

    Hi there! In recipes, capital "T." is short for tablespoon. If you see a lowercase "t." then it refers to teaspoon. Hope that helps! Happy cooking!
