Tyrolean Nut Cake

, , , , , ,

I haven’t had this cake for a long time now, don’t ask why. 🙂 It’s quick to prepare and really delicious!

The Tyrolean Nut Cake tastes best when you leave it to rest for a whole day. It will stay moist for a few days, if it survives that long. 🙂

I mixed grated walnuts in the dough and topped with roasted hazelnuts.
You can also use different nuts like: walnuts, hazelnuts or almonds, depending on taste!
