Notes

This cake we used to eat at home in the weekends, it's delicious with coffee. It is quite a filling cake. I found the recipe some time ago in a cookingbook called "Nije petiele", it has frisian recipes collected by Wieke de Haan and was published in 1993. The book is written in Frisian, so I made a translation of the recipe below.

The hazlenuts can be substituted by the same amount of wallnuts, if you don't have hazlenuts at hand. Though personally I prefer to use hazlenuts.

A dash of local for every season
