Hi Jeanne,

yes you can check the cake after 30 minutes. Make a toothpick sample before removing the cake from the oven.
Enjoy.

Is it possible to make this into cupcakes rather than a cake? If so what alterations do you think would be necessary?

Hi, If you reduce 100 g nuts you must use 65 g more flour. That should work. 🙂

Hi just to confirm – do we use 3.5 tsp of baking powder?

Klaraslife 5. March 2020 - 10:44

Hi, yes that’s correct. In Germany we use 1 packets baking powder that’s 3 1/2 tsp. But I think it will work with 3 tsp too.

I was searching for a Hazelnut cake like my Oma made for me in 1969. I found your recipe and saw it was your Oma’s so I made it. It was exactly like I remembered and brought me back to her kitchen in Munich. I and all my family loved it. I covered it with a ganache as she did. Perfection! Thank you so much!.

you can try it with flax egg, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar and 1/2 tsp baking soda.
