It is a good idea to start by whipping or whisking up your eggs. I suggest fitting a stand mixer with whisk attachment. Then whisk the eggs until they they triple in size, which can take from five to ten minutes to do. The eggs will turn a light yellow color when they are ready. Tip: start the mixer on a low speed and increase the speed to medium as they begin to incorporate with one another.
Preheat your over to 350. Prep a square cake pan for nonstick. I like to use parchment paper that overhangs the sides (easy to get the cake out for cutting ? ).Then spray the cookie sheets with parchment with a bit of muffin pan for nonstick. You can use nonstick spray too.
While the eggs are whisking and the oven is heating, we will need to warm up the hazelnut spread (1 cup if you are using an additional cup for a topping). In a microwave safe bowl, heat up the spread on a medium to high setting. You will need to stop and stir the spread every 15-20 seconds to stir it. It should take about one to two minutes to get warm for this recipe (not hot). Then use a fork to stir in the flour
When your eggs are ready remove the bowl from the mixer. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the remaining ingredients. Bake your cake for 30-35 minutes in the center of the oven or until a toothpick (or other tester) comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool before removing it from the pan. To top the cake with the leftover hazelnut spread, simply drizzle or swirl the spread on top.
I mentioned that the secret to the success of this cake rally lies with the eggs that you add to it. Since we are not using a leavening agent in this recipe, we need to incorporate the air when we whisk up the eggs. In layman (or laywoman) terms, this means that you need to whisk your eggs until they triple in size, which can take from five to ten minutes to do (think stand mixer with whisk attachment!).
Also, you will need All Purpose Flour as one of the ingredients in this cake recipe.
However, you could try to make this cake recipe gluten free by using gluten free flour instead of regular flour. Or, you can make this recipe low carb by using low carb Carbalose flour.
Make this 'keto friendly' by using a keto friendly flour.
