Aromatic hazelnut cake

As I love having my morning coffee with something sweet I very often bake this hazelnut cake which is perfect for a sweet breakfast. It is super tasty and full of energy a power kick to start the day :)

  • 200g ground hazelnuts (you can use any kind of nuts, walnuts and almonds are also delicious)
  • 100g chopped hazelnuts
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 package vanilla sugar
  • 200 ml cream 35%
  • 2-3 spoon of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

Preheat your oven to 180ÂșCand prepare a teacake mould 8cm x 27cm.Beat the yolks and the sugars together either in the food processor, or in a bowl with a whisk, until pale. Add the cream, flour and baking powder and whisk until combined. Add chopped hazelnuts and whisk again.

In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they form soft white foam peaks. Now take your hazelnut mixture and add alternately a portion of ground hazelnuts and one of the egg white foam, fold together carefully – without beating the bubbles out of the egg white completely. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake in the preheated oven for around 45 minutes until there is a little gold colour on the top of the cake. You can check to see that it's ready by sticking a cocktail stick into the centre of the cake. It should come out clean and not sticky, if it is still sticky just leave it in the oven for 5-10 minutes more.
