So my mum had a hazelnut cake that she used to make when we were kids, though she stopped making it when we became older. I really want to bake it, but dad is wincing and giving me desperate looks when I mention it. So I wont bake it. Today. Tomorrow when he is off to work is another question…
Anyway. It is delicious, and glutenfree and dairy free. It is *not* vegan or sugarfree, though I am pretty sure that anyone willing to experiment with replacing the eggs and sugar, can make it vegan or sugarfree. I am posting the version with hazelnuts, but any nuts should work just fine!
2 1/4 dl hazelnuts OR 150 g. (FYI 1 dl of ground hazelnuts is roughly 45 g)
2 dl sugar
1 tsk baking powder
Preheat the oven to 175 C.
Grind the nuts finely in a blender (if you are using whole nuts). With a spoon ot spatula, gently mix the eggs, sugar and baking powder. Add the ground nuts and mix it some more.
Pour the batter into a breaded pan with some parchment paper in the bottom and immediately put it into the oven for 40 minutes.
Anyway. This is the hazelnut cake mum used to make.
