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

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

Quick and delicious! The roasted hazelnuts add a depth of flavor that sets this chocolate cake apart from the rest. Be sure to follow the recipe exactly to ensure a light, fluffy texture and experiment with garnishes! We dusted each slice with extra cocoa powder and a few raspberries on the side!
