Grain Free Hazelnut Cake

You’ll love this cake! Not only is it delicious, it’s also super quick to prepare – you simply throw all the ingredients into your food processor and mix until super smooth.

This cake is perfect on it’s own or spread with one of the following topping suggestions:

  • Double Cream (as I did in the photo above)
  • Cream Cheese
  • Grated Chocolate (if you don’t have a problem with digesting chocolate!)
  • Finely Grated Orange Rind

You could also make the following variations to the cake:

  • For a Chocolate Hazelnut Cake mix through a tablespoon of cocoa dissolved in 2 tablespoons of boiling water, allow to cool then process with the rest of the cake ingredients below.
  • For an Orange Hazelnut Cake mix through the rind of 1 orange and juice of half and orange, careful to ensure no pips are mixed in.
  • Or you could include both of the above suggestions for a Chocolate Orange Hazelnut Cake.
  • You could also replace the ground hazelnuts with ground almonds for a Grain Free Almond Cake.
