Hazelnut Torte.

2014-06-07 12.40.55Saturday was such a washout here….that it seemed a good idea to do a spot of baking!  I had picked up a recipe card from a friends shop in Clitheroe ‘Chillimoon’ for Hazelnut Torte. The recipe uses Wharfe Valley Rapeseed Oil which Chillimoon now stocks. Apart from using a slightly to large cake tin ( my fault, not the recipes), the Torte turned out pretty well. Heres the instructions as printed on the card.

1 free range egg
100 ml clear honey
75ml ‘Wharfe Valley’ rapeseed oil
50g unsalted butter
2tbsp apple juice
100g ground hazelnuts
100g wholemeal self raising flour


Preheat oven to 160. Brush a 20cm cake tin with melted butter, to grease.

Whisk together the egg,honey, rapeseed oil, butter and apple juice in a bowl until well combined.

Add the ground hazelnuts and the flour and stir until well combined.

Transfer the cake mix to the greased tin, level the mixture out using a spatula, then put in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the cake has risen and is golden brown.

Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.

Decorate with raspberries dusted with Icing sugar and serve.


Hope you had a lovely weekend. 🙂

Thursday Favourites ’14’

Here are a few things I have enjoyed or appreciated over the last seven days. 🙂


Rumaging through a box at a Crafty Vintage fair. I found a copy of The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley. Such gorgeous gorgeous illustrations in this magical childrens tale. 🙂 I had this book as a child and had all but forgotten ~ a hundred precious memories came back to me as soon as I opened it. I had to have it. 🙂


Some lovely friends of ours have opened a shop in our home town. They were kind enough to stock some of my tea cup candles. Hurrah! The shop is called Chillimoon and is in Clitheroe. Do pop in if your in town!
