Description

Roasted, ground hazelnuts lends a nutty background note to this chocolate cake, which uses all-purpose and potato flour in its batter. The latter ensures a surprisingly delicate result, while making the dough easier to handle. Interstingly, the starch in potatoes also attracts and retains water, therefore helping to boost the cake;s moisture content. You'll need a ring cake to bake it, though you can substitute a bundt pan for similar results.

Ingredients

50 grams roasted hazelnuts (shelled)
5 eggs
200 grams sugar
salt
125 grams all-purpose flour
125 grams potato flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
30 grams cocoa powder
150 milliliters vegetable oil

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
2Crush the hazelnuts using a food processor.
3In a bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar and a pinch of salt until light and frothy.
4Sieve the flours, baking powder, and cocoa powder.
5Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, a little at a time, alternating with the oil.
6Pour into a greased and floured 24-centimeter ring mold, and coat with the hazelnuts.
7Place the pan in the oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
