This Hazelnut Torte Recipe was my Mutti's favorite. Special, yet very easy to make. We all loved it, especially when it had marzipan frosting. Then "special" became "extra special." It has no butter, no oil, and very little flour. The resulting cake is very light, yet very delicious. The main ingredient? Hazelnuts.
This torte can be filled with whipped cream or just iced with chocolate and served with whipped cream. Now, that's quick and easy! Haselnusstorte ... make it your special cake as well. Wunderbar!
To make it extra special for Christmas or birthdays, fill with the "custard" filling and cover with marzipan as shown in the photos. "Heavenly!"
If you do plan to fill it, let it cool thoroughly - even overnight. This could just become your best cake recipe as well!
This Hazelnut Cake recipe was one Mutti often made for guests. Easy German recipes were among her specially noted recipes in her own handwritten cookbook. She was a busy lady, but took extra care to have everything extra special when company came.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
