Recipe for Hazelnut Torte

Recipe Ingredients:
Eggs, separated
6 tbsp  Water
1 3/4 cup  Sifter Flour
1 1/2 cup  Blanched Hazelnuts (Filberts) (Ground)
2 tbsp  Powdered Sugar
  Fresh Strawberries (if desired)
3/4 cup  Sugar
1 tsp  Baking Powder
1 tsp  Vanilla
1 cup  Heavy cream, whipped

Cooking Directions:
1.  Beat the egg yolks and sugar until very light, about 5 minutes. Slowly add the water. Sift the flour and baking powder together; mix with 1 cup of the nuts. Fold the flour mixture into the egg yolks. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold the beaten whites into the batter. Pour into a greased and floured 10 inch spring form pan.

2.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool the cake on a rack. When completely cooled, split the cake into 2 layers. Fold the vanilla, powdered sugar, and remaining 1/2 cup nuts into the whipped cream. Spread whipped cream between the 2 cake layers and on top of the cake. Chill until serving time. Garnish with fresh strawberries, if desired. Makes 8 servings.

3.  Hazelnuts are available at specialty or gourmet stores. They should be blanched. To blanch, boil the nuts 5 minutes and when cool enough to handle, remove the skins. To grind, place about 1/4 cup at a time into a blender or chop finely.
