This cake was traditionally a birthday cake in my friend's home. Her mother is from Hungary and only has this recipe in her head! Now it will be preserved . . . Note: hazelnuts may be toasted or un-toasted. The skins may be removed or left on.
This was the most beautiful cake, although we adapted it slightly. It was also super easy to make. What we did was split the batter into two 20cm cake tins and baked for about 25 minutes, then decorated with nutella buttercream (naked-cake style), fresh strawberries and chocolate nests for Easter. The texture is lovely and meringue-y too. - 27 Mar 2018

This is a fabulous torte. I've made it several times and it has been perfect EVERY time. I do "sift" the hazelnuts using a colendar to be sure the nuts are fine enough. I've also made it using almonds instead of hazelnuts. (12 oz equals 2 1/2 c. nuts). - 08 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
