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.


  1. Yours is beautiful! I need to make it with the proper ingredients next time!

  2. This was a delicious recipe. We love hazelnuts.

  3. Your loaf looks so pretty! I had some almonds to use up when I made mine, but the hazelnut version sounds delicious.

  4. This cake is surprisingly good and I agree will be a repeat recipe for sure. your loaf looks perfect and moist. Yum!


Thank you for visiting. I'd love to hear from you.
