To all those busy squirrels out there: “You love hazelnuts? It might be healthier for you to look away now!” Just kidding guys. It’s well known that squirrels can’t afford internet access. But if it would be possible and if those busy rodents with their shrubby tail could catch a glimpse of my granny’s nut cake, some of them would probably go green with envy.
Nut cake? There are a lot of really good recipes out there. So, why should my granny’s nut cake be something special?
Personally, I associate a lot of childhood memories with this piece of cake. Okay, I was already in my teens when this cake was first introduced:
I was a teenager when my granny presented this cake crammed full of hazelnuts. She was so proud that she had typewritten it, printed out a good number of it, and gave it to every guest who expressed interest in it.
Besides my memories, this cake is simple and quick (if you ignore the baking time) in its preparation. Convince yourself and take a look:
That’s it. I am not sure about you. But I will treat myself with a piece of it.
With this in mind,
let’s go nuts!
