Last night I attended a gathering that was hosted by the same friend who helped me bake the chocolate flourless cake.
I was short on time so I used Jamie Oliver’s Hazelnut torte recipe. It’s not too heavy and as always, very easy to follow. This is a classic Italian treat, which contains hazelnuts and ricotta. I forgot to buy poppy seeds, so I didn’t add them, it’s just as tasty without them.
I placed some hazelnut praline on the top for added aesthetics and an extra element of texture. I followed the same praline recipe that was made in the same post as the chocolate flourless cake, except I used chopped hazelnuts instead of the almond flakes.
In Jamie’s recipe, he uses whole hazelnuts and uses a food processor to make it into hazelnut meal. I just bought hazelnut meal from the supermarket, which makes things quicker and reduces an extra step to follow.
Torte has been cooled and dark chocolate has been grated on top.
Sugar is bubbling away, waiting for caramelisation to occur. Follow instructions found at the bottom of this post.
