Hazelnut and chocolate cake

This is such a delicious and moist cake. It’s not only flourless, but also uses no fat. It even uses only egg whites and not the yolks. I prefer to use hazelnuts in mine to have a different flavour at Pesach, however you can replace it with almonds or a mixture of the two — whatever you fancy.

    Method
    • Preheat the oven to 180°C fan and line the base of a 20cm round springform baking tin with baking parchment.
    • Mix the sugar with the ground hazelnuts and a pinch of salt.
    • Finely chop the chocolate, keep a handful aside for decoration later, and add the rest to the sugar and hazelnuts, together with the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt.
    • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until very stiff. l Gradually add the sugar, hazelnut and chocolate mixture to the egg whites and fold it gently until you have a thick, smooth texture.
    • Pour the mixture into the tin and sprinkle with the chocolate you put aside and the extra chopped /whole hazelnuts.
    • Bake it for about 30 minutes.Serve warm or at room temperature.
