'The Nutty Cake' - White Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake

On my frequent trips to Harvest wholefoods, I always fill up a brown paper bag with organic roasted hazelnuts. They're part of my daily snack routine. I love how rich and sweet they are and I absolutely love how well they go with chocolate. So, I've decided to make a white chocolate and hazelnut cake. It's nutty and textured and generously jeweled with white chocolate buttons. Yum.

Ingredients:

sugar
butter
organic eggs
organic vanilla extract
salt
organic ground hazelnuts
flour
baking powder
white chocolate buttons

I also made this recipe in cupcake form.

'Autumn Cake' - Pear and Fresh Ginger Cake

Pear and ginger make a harmonious match and when unified in a cake, the result is rather lovely. This is a soft and fruity cake laced with juicy pears, nutmeg and freshly grated ginger, with a caramelised pear and honey almond topping. It's a culmination of three different recipes from my collection, to make what I believe to be the perfect any time of day cake. Have a slice for morning tea or for dessert served warm with vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients:

butter
sugar
vanilla extract
organic eggs
ground almonds
flour
nutmeg
fresh grated ginger
milk
organic green pears

honey
sliced almonds

New Cake Coming Soon

Apologies for my failure to provide a brand new 'cake of the week' this week people. I was supplying the flourless dark chocolate cake and the orange and almond cake (both gluten free) as these seems to be my biggest hits, so I've decided to have these two on offer every week alongside the specialty 'cake of the week.' My new recipe will be up on Wednesday; a delicious pear and fresh ginger creation that I hope will make up for the lack of posting.


Thanks Cakies,
