  • One of my favorite desserts to eat growing up was Hazelnut cake. My mom made it in a bundt pan and topped it off with powdered sugar. It included chocolate chips and ground hazelnut. I haven't had it in years. The recipe my mom has is in German and she says it's too much trouble to translate it into English, but I found this from Taste of Home and I'm pretty sure it's the same recipe (I'm going to email it to my mother and ask. The only thing I noticed is that it doesn't say anything about the powdered sugar, but I'm sure that's optional anyway.

    Can't fit the recipe in this post, so next one up.

  • your mix in your cake pans and bake at 350 for 45 mins to an hour, toothpick will come out clean when inserted in the middle.
    I like to do a cocoa cream cheese frosting with this, and sometimes I will spice that up as well.
    Its yummy and different! Enjoy!
