No flour … No milk ,This recipe intrigued me. It's a moist dense consistency … and quite yummy !

Ingredients (makes 1 cake)

  • 3 large eggs,separated
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons greek yogurt
  • 160 grams hazelnut meal


  1. Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until thick and creamy
  2. Stir in the yogurt, lemon zest and hazelnut meal
  3. In another bowl whisk the egg whites until stiff. Carefully fold into hazelnut mixture
  4. Pour batter into a 23 cm round, paper lined cake tin and bake at 180 deg. for 30- 35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle
  5. Cool in tin


This cake rises in the oven then settles when cooling to produce a dense but not heavy cake. Lemony and nutty , it is a quick and easy cake thats also gluten free. Serve with yogurt, cream or fresh fruit slices
