Hazelnut Apple Cake

, , , ,

This Hazelnut Apple Cake tastes really nutty, fruity, moist with a slight scent of Christmas from the gingerbread spice.

The grated apples in the nut filling keeps this cake moist and fruity, so it is still fresh on the 2nd or 3rd day.

You can use other nuts too. This time I used hazelnuts, but walnuts or almonds, or a nut-mix would taste just as good.

This cake is just perfect for late autumn, the time before Christmas cookies are baked. Maybe this cake will bring you into the right mood for the Advent season.

You can also use cinnamon instead of gingerbread spice, tastes also delicious!
