    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.)

      This is a great recipe! The cake came out really light, fluffy and delicate! I was very surprised with how much is rose. <br/>I roasted my hazelnuts first and chucked them in a tea towel, rubbed it all and then shook it in a colander to let the skins fall out. Worth the effort. <br/>I didn't dress it but it would suit something very very light like a Chantilly cream, maybe a little orange or mandarine essence. <br/>By cooking it in two tins you get more of the beautiful crispy hazelnut outside.<br/>Thank you for sharing, this took about 5 minutes to prep in my thermomix blender, will use again!

      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.
