    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    This is an excellent, excellent cake, although not inexpensive to make. You can make it dairy free, just don't use butter on the pans. It can also be made gluten-free, if you use rice flour. I have not given instructions for icing it, but it should be iced and generally presented quite formally; this is a special occasion cake. I like either a chocolate frosting or glaze on this. Also I have tinted and rolled out marzipan which I then cut with cookie cutters and used to decorate the iced cake. If I put a chocolate glaze on it, I like to add a thin layer of apricot jam over the cake first. "Go nuts!" (Prep time does not include icing or decorating the cake.)

      Nice recipe. I adapted it a bit and used ingredients I had on hand. I did not have hazelnuts. I divided the recipe roughly into thirds and used two eggs for each third. I used pecans, almonds, and pinon nuts for each third. The almond was a bit dry but all were very good. <br/>I stacked them as three level cakes and spread almond paste and store bought cherry preserves between the layers. I covered the whole thing with cream cheese chocolate frosting. The cream cheese frosting recipe I used called for four cups of sugar. I used one. It was excellent.

      My only substitution was to use Splenda instead of flour, and my cake turned out a bit dry. Don't know if that's why or if I should have used extra-large eggs. A good dark chocolate glaze or frosting would have really made the cake. The glaze recipe I tried (for the first time) was too runny.

      Jenny this is a wonderful recipe and so easy. I've made it at least three times so far and I've just joined this site only so I can rate it. The only thing I don't understand is why you make it in two batches. Do you have a small food processor? I put everything in mine in one go, then pour it into two identical baking tins. Today being St Valentine's Day, I used heart-shaped silicone tins. The cakes are now cooling, later I'll sandwich them together with sweetened chestnut puree and ice it with ganache. Thank you for this recipe. Sunny
