Hazelnut Cake (No Butter, No Flour)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

A fast and easy coffee cake. The most work is the grinding of the nuts, but that doesn't take long. Good for lactose and gluten intolerants. I often make this for my mother-in-law who is 100% milk protein intolerant.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put oven to 200°C (or 390°F).
  2. Butter and flour a loaf tin.
  3. For gluten intolerants, use grounded nuts for this step.
  4. "Cream” egg and sugar together for 10 minutes to get a yellow and fluffy batter.
  5. Fold in the ground nuts.
  6. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes in the middle of the oven until a stick comes out clean.
  7. Let cool slightly and tip out of the tin; let cool completely.

This receipe works exactly as it is. I was a bit sceptical but 25 minutes later a perfect cake appears in the oven. After it cools I'll frost it with a cream cheese frosting and serve it cold. I did use extra large eggs and commercially ground hazelnut flour.
