My Stiefoma went with her friend in the castle and most of the times, the delicious hazelnut cake was served without the flour. As far as the recipe is enough back in time that my step-mom doesn't know, unfortunately. My Stiefoma got it anyway, from the castle cook handed over and from then on, she baked the cake recipe, slightly changed, is also home on a regular basis. She added, however, Rum and Lemon zest.

I have both omitted, especially because of the rum. This is nothing 😉 for our son and I didn't like the lemon in it. Also, I have halved the quantity as I found it to be lush. If You want to give a big company or a cake sale with the hazelnut cake without flour, then double the amount 😉 just take . By the way, in the hazelnut cake without flour, no leavening agent comes in, such as baking powder, so the liquid level in Your cake, the final cake height. The cake bakes, as it is.

The hazelnut cake is not made ultra-simple and fast what is not important. My personal iTüpfelchen the combination of the delicate, bitter-chocolate glaze and hazelnuts. Hazelnuts and chocolate are always a dream couple, the one we know since the Nutella is 😉 . The crisp chocolate layer to fit nuts taste just wonderful to the succulent hazelnuts. But of course, You can just as well be the dark chocolate glaze for another to replace it. Or You can use powdered sugar as a Topping, which is also very tasty.

The juicy hazelnut cake without flour is not taste a strong treat of in spite of the powder quantity of sugar to be sweet. The powdered sugar makes it again fluffy and my impression is, because he connects the jaws with the nuts. My step-mom used for the recipe by the way brown sugar and only half of the specified amount. You can use the hazelnut cake safely for a few days keep. For my taste it is even better from day to day, and juicy, because he draws beautifully.

As an Alternative to hazelnuts, you can use fine ground walnuts or ground almonds!

For streusel cake Fans, I recommend You use my simple sprinkles bottom of cake with Apple.
