A wonderfully nutty hazelnut cake that is so extremely simple to make. You can also make it with almonds instead of hazelnuts. To make your own ground nuts, simply add the whole nuts to a food processor and process in short bursts till you achieve a fine crumbly mixture.
Great cake and really easy to make gluten free . Love that there's no butter in it too! - 16 Jul 2011
Very easy and delicious with a sort of European feel to it because of all the nuts and the coffee glaze. I used less icing sugar in the glaze (150g) and it still seemed thick enough. - 08 Oct 2014
Put heaped tsp mixed spice in as I didn't use rum, but wanted a spicier flavour. Texture was perfect, though I did have to cook it for about 10 mins longer than stated. I used a loaf tin. Perfect way to use up some of the hazel nuts from the garden - 18 Aug 2017
