  Hi, my name is linda, can you help me?  I have a german great 
  grandmother who refuses to share her delicatable recipies with me, 
  she comes from bavaria, she makes a hazelnut torte that has 9 eggs, 
  1 cup of finely ground hazelnuts absolutely no flour, it is 2   -   
  8" round  cake,  it is the most mouthwatering, light, not heavy cake 
  i have ever eaten, i have tried alot of recipies but they come out 
  to heavy.  Please try to find.  thanks Linda 

Hi Linda,

Well, I looked at dozens of hazelnut torte recipes. Most contained chocolate and at least a cup of flour. I did find one that contained no flour. It's the first one below. However, it contains only 6 eggs. The second recipe is called a hazelnut cake rather than a torte. It does contain some flour, but only 1 tablespoon. However, it contains TEN eggs! Can you imagine? 10 eggs!

If neither of these is right, you better start reminding your great-grandmother that she really should share her recipe with a family member (you...) if she wants to see it handed down within the family. One thing for sure is that none of us is going to live forever.


  Tante Marie's Hazelnut Torte

  6 egg yolks 
  1 cup sugar 
  3 Tbs cold water 
  1/2 cup bread crumbs or 5 Zwieback ground (1/2 cup) 
  1/2 lb. finely ground hazelnuts or filberts (about 1-1./4 cup) 
  1 tsp baking powder 
  6 egg whites 
  1 cup heavy cream 
  1 tsp vanilla 
  2 tbs sugar (about) 
  Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 

  Beat egg yolks until foamy with 1 cup sugar. Add cold water and continue 
  to beat. 

  Add bread crumbs (or Zwieback), nuts and baking powder, and mix. 

  Beat whites until stiff and fold into nut mixture. 

  Only grease and flour bottom of 2 - 9" pans and place wax paper or parchment 
  paper into pans. Pour batter into pans. 

  Bake 20 mins. Allow to cool. Remove from pans when cold. 

  Beat heavy cream until peaks form; add vanilla and 2 tbs sugar to sweeten. 
  Frost with sweetened whipped cream.
  Haselns Kuchen (Hazelnut Cake)  
  280 g (10 oz.) ground hazelnuts
  10 eggs, separated
  280 g (1 1/2 cups) sugar
  1 Tbsp. flour (rounded)

  250 g (1 1/2 cups) powdered sugar
  1/2 cup lemon juice, or rum, or amaretto

  Mix the sugar and egg yolks with a mixer until creamy (this takes
  longer than you'd suspect - mix for a longer rather than shorter
  amount of time if in doubt). Mix the flour and nuts together, then
  add them to the egg mixture and mix well. Whip the egg whites until
  stiff and then fold them into the nuts/egg yolk mixture. Put batter
  in a well buttered and floured 10" spring-form pan. Bake at 320 F
  for 60 minutes.

  Glazing: Mix powdered sugar and liquid; add a little water if
  necessary. Blend. Spread over thoroughly cooled cake and let sit
  for awhile to settle before cutting the cake

    Dear Uncle,

    My third request, and I feel like we really are related by now.  
Now I am looking for a "hot milk cake" which my mother-in-law made.  
My husbaNd just loved it and talks about it all the time.  I think 
it was probably made in an 8x8 pan, eaten right out of the pan in 
squares while warm with absolutely no toppings or any kind.  
Just plain.

    Good luck and thanks again for being there.
