Gianduia Torte

If you like Nutella, you will like this torte! I made this awhile ago, before I knew that Dr. Campbell-McBride had OK'd cocoa for more advanced GAPSters. I am sorry I don't have a photo, but I am so happy I can share the recipe with you now :)


2 cups Hazelnuts
1/4 cup Butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup filtered water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or butter an 8 or 9 inch round cake pan. Grind hazelnuts into a fine powder in a food processor. Melt butter and mix with honey in a medium-sized bowl. Add eggs, water and vanilla and beat until well-blended.

Pulse cocoa powder and salt into the ground hazelnuts. Gradually beat dry ingredients into wet ingredients.

Bake for 15-30 minutes until set. (Sorry I don't remember the exact time. When I make this again, I'll jot down the time and get a pic.)

  1. This torte sounds amazing. Not having a picture makes it even more exciting, now I HAVE to make it just to see what it looks like. Yay!
