The hazelnuts give this cake a surprising crunch. It's covered with a buttery mocha frosting. —Joylyn Trickel

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped hazelnuts, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 8 egg whites
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • MOCHA FROSTING:
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons hot brewed coffee

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, hazelnuts, baking powder and salt. Whisk the egg yolks, water, oil and vanilla; add to dry ingredients. Beat until well blended. In another large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form; fold into batter.
  2. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest rack at 325° for 60-70 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert the pan onto a wire rack; cool completely. Carefully run a knife around edges and center tube to loosen; remove cake.
  3. In a small bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar. Beat in the baking cocoa, vanilla and enough coffee to achieve desired consistency. Frost cake. Yield: 12-16 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 30, 2014

"This recipe is awful! It came out heavy and dry. The icing was nothing like it was supposed to be. I had to add to it to try to fix it. Horrible texture and taste. And I spent $10 on hazelnuts, so I'm not happy with this recipe at all."
