Preparation Time: 30 mins

Cook: 1 hr

Servings: 12


  • 12 ounces hazelnuts
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 egg yolks
  • ⅝ cup white sugar
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • ⅛ cup chopped hazelnuts, for garnish


Step 1.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch springform pan. Grind hazelnuts until very fine. Add baking powder and set aside.

Step 2.
In a large bowl, whip the egg yolks with the sugar until pale yellow in color. Beat in the ground hazelnut mixture.

Step 3.
In a separate clean bowl, with a clean whisk, whip the egg whites until stiff. Quickly fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the yolk mixture, then add the remaining whites and fold in until no streaks remain.

Step 4.
Pour into a 9 inch springform. Bake in a preheated oven for 60 to 75 minutes, or until the top of the cake springs back when lightly tapped. Cool on a wire rack.

Step 5.
When the cake is cool, slice horizontally into 3 layers. Whip the cream until stiff, and spread generously between layers, on top and on the sides of the cake. Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts on top for decoration.
