Recipe Description
This cake is practically all nuts and butter. I like to serve it as they do in Piedmont, with a generous spoonful of warm zabaglione, but it is also good plain or with chocolate sauce and ice cream.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1 1/2 Cup(c)  hazelnuts, toasted and skinned
1/2 Cup(c)  all purpose flour
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  salt
1/2 Cup(c)  unsalted butter
2/3 Cup(c)  sugar
3   large eggs, at room temperature
4 Tablespoon(T)  confectioner's sugar


Place the rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a 9 by 2 inch round baking pan. In a food processor or blender, finely chop the nuts. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and pulse just to blend. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter until softened. Gradually add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the nut mixture just until blended. Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake 30 minutes, or until the cake golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes in the pan. Invert the cake onto a cooling rack. Turn the cake right side up onto another rack and cool completely. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Store covered with an inverted bowl at room temperature up to 3 days.
