Hazelnut Bundt Cake



I was wondering how best to make use of some hazelnut meal languishing in my fridge when I stumbled upon this recipe.  This recipe is rather easy to put together with a few simple ingredients that are easily available.  The texture is moist, almost similar to pound cake with a tinge of  nutty flavour, light and yum!

















This cake certainly goes down well with a nice brew of hot tea ............. relax and enjoy!
