This is an Austrian recipe that was passed on from one generation to the next in my family. The secret of this cake's full flavour and softness: Prepare it one day in advance before eating it!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch Bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the egg yolks, butter and white sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the black tea. Toss together the flour, baking powder, bread crumbs, cocoa powder, and hazelnuts; fold into the tea mixture until just incorporated.
  3. In a large clean glass or metal bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the tea batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center, comes out clean. Cool cake in the pan for at least 20 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Oooh. This was fantastic. It's great to have for breakfast with coffee or tea and is quite filling. Doesn't need frosting or anything of the sort but this isn't a sweet birthday cake! I was a bit nervous that it'd be too sweet when I measured out the sugar but once the batter was ready and it already smelled heavenly I knew this would be good. I used Ghirardelli's cocoa powder and plain old black tea. Didn't have that much hazelnuts at home so I used half walnuts half hazelnuts. The results were a delicious and moist coffee cake. I'll have to learn this recipe by heart.

I'm not an experienced baker, but this cake was fairly easy and fast to make. I baked it for an aunt's birthday and she isn't a big fan of dense cakes but I loved its rich chocolate flavor. I'll be skipping the nuts next time though. For the icing, I used plain and simple chocolate glaze and it tasted fab!

This cake was fantastic!!! I used a black chai tea to enhance the flavors & put some mixed fruit on top. Made it for an award ceremony; It was gone in the blink of an eye!!!! Everybody loved it & i thought it was very easy to make. My friends even asked me to make some more for them! Definitely doing it again :D
