Start by making the cake. Beat the sugar with the egg yolks. Add the yogurt and a pinch of salt. After mixing them in well, sift in the flour with the baking powder and finally the beaten egg whites. Butter and lightly flour the Christmas tree mould and pour the batter in, sprinkling over the berries. Bake at 180°C for about 40 minutes, then remove from the oven and turn the cake out. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. Mix the flour and sugar, adding the finely chopped chocolate. Meanwhile, put the milk on to warm. Then add it to the flour and sugar mixture gradually so as not to form lumps, using a hand whisk. Transfer the pan to the stove, bring to the boil stirring constantly, and continue to simmer for about 5-10 minutes until the sauce thickens. At this point, pour it over the cake which should be sitting on a wire rack, making sure the entire surface is covered and that the excess can drain underneath. Finish by decorating with chocolate and then sprinkling with the coloured sugar.

You can decorate the tree with coloured sugar, and we illustrate how we do in this recipe, or you create your own decoration according to taste, with chocolate chips or cherries.
The Christmas tree is the symbol of life around the world, regardless of religious or cultural differences. In all religions and cultures, in fact, the Christmas tree carries great meaning and significance.
