Finely chopped hazelnuts are produced using a system that prevents the hazelnuts' oil from escaping and therefore, helps them retain their nutrients.
The Finely Chopped Hazelnuts are suitable for direct consumption, for use in bakery products, ice cream, the catering industry or for further processing stages.
Their medium-size cut makes them ideal for bakery preparations.
Ingredients (4 servings):
Cream the butter with the sugar and chop the hazelnuts.
Tip the flour onto the cutting board and pour the butter and sugar mixture, egg yolks, chopped hazelnuts and grated lemon zest into the centre of the flour and mix everything.
Beat the egg whites until they are stiff and add them to the mixture, continue to knead until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and the dough is soft and firm.
Preheat the oven to 180C, pour the dough into the cake pan and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
