Hungarian Flourless Hazelnut Cake
I'm on a low-carb diet so I thought this torte would be perfect as it contains no flour. Other flourless torte recipes I've seen feature lots more eggs and now I've tried to make this with just 6 I understand why. As other reviewers have mentioned, the egg yolk/hazelnut flour mixture ends up so solid that it's impossible to lightly fold in the egg whites. As the recipe does not specify which size eggs to use I have used medium but clearly this does not provide enough liquid! I could not even mix half the hazelnut flour into the egg yolks. I poured the rest into the whites and then folded these in bit by bit but was left with a dense batter which needed to be spooned rather than poured into the tin. The cake did not rise at all in the oven, so it's not really thick enough to slice into two let alone three layers. I took it out after 40 minutes because it was already as hard as a rock.
