Preparation: Soft Cake with Hazelnuts & Gianduja

  1. In a thermomix® or food processor, mix the soft butter and slowly add the sugars.
  2. Add the oil until well incorporated.
  3. Add the first quantity of gianduja that was previously melted.
  4. Slowly and progressively incorporate the eggs until well combined.
  5. Add the hazelnut powder and the rum and mix again.
  6. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder together onto a parchment paper. Add into the previous preparation and mix again.
  7. In a mixing bowl, mix the flour and the gianduja cubes (quantity #2).
  8. Sift them to remove the excess flour.
  9. Pour the first mixture into the bowl with the gianduja cubes and mix well.
  10. Before filling the molds, brush them with soft butter using a pastry brush. Sift some flour on top until the butter is completely covered. Tap the excess flour out.
  11. Pour the mixture into the molds to half full.
  12. Using a scale, check that all the molds contain the same quantity.
  13. Bake at 160°C (320°F) for about 25 minutes.
  14. Once baked, let the cakes cool down for 5 minutes before unmolding them onto a wire rack.
  15. With a pastry brush, coat the cake with a neutral glaze. It will help fix the decorations.
  16. Finally, place the hazelnuts on top to decorate the cake.
