Gluten-free hazelnut orange cake ~ 无麸榛子香橙蛋糕

This is a simple recipe which calls for hazelnut meal, which is the star ingredient alongside eggs and sugar.  Easy to make and full of hazelnut flavour, it's an awesome cake especially for those who are allergic to wheat flour and dairy.  You can also look 'here' at another Flourless Orange Almond cake which I posted not too long ago.  Perhaps you can bake this and serve your friends and relatives, this Christmas!
