Hazelnut, Ginger and Olive Oil Cake - Tuesdays with Dorie

Tuesdays with Dorie's second recipe this month from the book Baking Chez Moi happens to be one of my favourite cakes from the "Simple Cakes" chapter of the book. I first made it a few years ago to use up ground hazelnuts left from Christmas baking. Since then, I've been buying ground hazelnuts just to make it.
It tastes of hazelnuts, fruity olive oil and ginger and is incredibly moist with polenta adding just enough crunch to give it an interesting texture. It's amazingly good. I'm not the only one who thinks that so it will be made again...and again.

Cold Chocolate Crémeux, Wine-Poached Cherries and Lots of Crumbs - Tuesdays with Dorie

The classic pairing of chocolate and cherries was at its finest in this dish of cool, creamy chocolate crémeux, crunchy chocolate crumbs and fruity cherry compote that kept the richness of it all in check. 
I made it for family who enjoyed it immensely but I would happily serve it to guests at a dinner party.
