.. and well used recipes,
.. and chocolate pastry cream,
.. and homemade hazelnut praline,
and… cake? Where’s my cake? Ahh, there you are.
Yes, I know it’s March. But this is my favorite cake. And I’m making it on strict request — and how can you say no to this cake. Seriously. I’d make this cake just for myself, if I didn’t know any better.
And for the title — we’re not just talking about any hazelnut.
But hazelnut praline.
This is what I’ve been up to all morning. And what I’ll be doing all evening? — eating. This cake (which, by definition — even in March — is a glorious Bûche de Noël). Yum. (And in between the baking and the eating — working out).
