    Serves: 10 

    • 2 eggs
    • 3/4 cup caster sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon caramel essence (or vanilla if caramel is unavailable)
    • grated rind of half an orange
    • 1/2 tablespoon ground coffee beans
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 cup hazelnuts (or unsalted cashews)

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Extra time:40min  ›  Ready in:2hours 

    1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C.
    2. Beat eggs, sugar, caramel essence, orange rind, coffee together.
    3. Mix in flour and baking powder. Add hazelnuts. Roll on floured board into two logs. (Mixture can be a bit dry so add small amounts of water to get it to stay together. It should still be quite dry though. )
    4. Slightly flatten the logs onto greased (or non-stick) baking tray or baking paper. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
    5. Remove from oven and cool. Cut into 1 cm thick slices. Logs are easier to cut if they are not cooked too much at this stage.
    6. Lay slices on their side and cook for 15-20 minutes. Turn once during this time.
