Hazelnut, Ginger and Olive Oil Cake

Tuesdays with Dorie
Baking Chez Moi
I would never think of these three ingredients to make a good cake but they do. I had to make my own hazelnut flour which I was happy to do as I love hazelnuts. During my assembly of ingredients I discovered my ginger had spoiled and I needed to head out again to the market to buy fresh. Despite my set backs the cake came together easy and baked in 60 minutes. I could hardly wait for it to cool to try it. This is a rich cake with both butter and olive oil so small pieces are in order. My husband enjoyed this one too. Another winner from Dorie.

    Yes! Strange combo but tastes delicious. Loved this cake.


  2. You are dedicated – I didn't go out to get either hazelnut flour or ginger so I really made a riff on the recipe. Need to try the proper one sooN!

    It was an odd mix of ingredients but surprisingly good. Glad you liked it.

    I had everything on hand, because I used almonds in place of hazelnuts. I'm going to have to try the original version, though, because it sounds delicious and looks beautiful.Teresa – One Wet Foot

    Your cake had to be a winner after all the work you put into it. It looks yummy and moist and just right. A win for you too!
