Caramel Hazelnut Cake Recipe
We love a decadent hazelnut cake recipe, with roasted hazelnuts, browned butter, and some freshly squeezed orange juice to give the caramel frosting that extra kick, letting it cascade across the top and down the sides of the cake. This easy hazelnut cake recipe is sure to please.
The first step in this hazelnut cake recipe is to grease and sugar a bundt pan, then combine the flour, baking powder, hazelnuts, and salt and set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the sugar, sour cream, and browned butter. Whip until it’s a smooth consistency with a pale amber color. Add the flour mixture, taking care not to overmix, then the boiling water. Let the cake bake for 30-35 minutes while you make the caramel. Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the brown sugar and orange juice, whisking quickly. When the caramel bubbles and thickens, add a pinch of salt and remove from the heat. When the cake is cooled, pour the caramel on the top, letting it drip down the sides, then sprinkle with hazelnuts and serve.
