Hazelnut Fudge Delight 

Print Friendly 

Description:
For those of you who love nuts and chocolate this is a fabulous treat. Since the cake is mostly nuts and eggs it is quite healthy and I use 72% or higher dark chocolate for the fudge so it is not overly sweet. Don’t be scared by the 3c of icing sugar. You need that much to offset the 8oz of dark chocolate. I have made this as a rolled cake but the cake is very dense and cracks easily. For your first try cut the cake into 4 equal rectangles and stack it with fudge between each layer and frost with remaining fudge all round.

Ingredients:
Cake
2c toasted hazelnuts 5 eggs separated
¼c white sugar ¼c white sugar
2Tbsp GF Baking Mix 1 tsp vanilla
½tsp baking powder 1 tsp grated orange rind (opt)

Chocolate Fudge Filling
8 oz dark chocolate 72% or higher ¼ tsp almond extract OR
¾c light cream or soy milk 2 Tbsp Amaretto or Hazelnut
½c butter liqueur
3c icing sugar


Directions:
Line a 10”x15” sheet pan with parchment paper allowing the edges of the paper to come up the sides of the pan. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°. Place nuts on a separate sheet pan and place in oven. Toast for 8 – 12 minutes. Place in a tea towel and rub to remove most of the skins. Allow to cool. Place nuts and ¼c sugar in a food processor and puree until nuts are finely ground. Add flour and baking powder and process again. Set aside.
Whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
In bowl of mixer place egg yolks and ¼c sugar. Beat on high for 3 minutes until thick and pale in colour. Beat in vanilla (and orange rind if using). Add nut mixture and mix well. Fold in whipped egg whites.
Spread batter on parchment lined sheet pan.
Bake at 350° for 20 – 25 minutes. Rotate half way through for even browning. Cool on wire rack. Cut into 4 equal rectangles. Peel off parchment paper.

Chocolate Fudge Filling
Place chocolate and milk in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 1 minute on high. Stir. Microwave for 30 seconds more stirring and repeating until melted and well blended. Set aside.
In bowl of mixer combine butter and icing sugar until a smooth paste is formed. Add almond extract (or liqueur if using). Add about ? of the chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Repeat until all the chocolate is incorporated.

Place one rectangle of cake on serving plate spread with filling to ¼”. Place on another layer of cake and filling and repeat until all cake is used up. Frost the cake with the remaining filling. Chill in the fridge until the chocolate is set. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before serving.
This will easily serve 10 people.

Wellness Tip
Fads Don't Fight Fat
Most health experts agree that people who lose weight with fad diets are rarely able to keep it off. You may also put yourself at risk for not getting enough nutrients. To help achieve a healthy weight loss, eat a well-balanced diet and participate in regular exercise. Limit your loss to between 1/2 and 2 pounds per week.

Company's coming
Food is an intimate thing; we use it to nourish and care for each other on a very primal level and it can make the difference between someone feeling welcome in your home and someone feeling threatened. Because I didn’t realize this when I was younger, and insisted on doggedly shoving tofu under people’s noses, I have extended family who are still afraid to even try anything I serve them!

Category: Soup
Description: This is a great recipe for cleanses, part of a weight-loss program, a simple lunch or broth for cooking with.
Beet greens are a very good source of calcium, iron, Vitamins A and C. Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid. They are a very good source of fiber, manganese and potassium. Beet fiber has been shown to have cholesterol lowering capabilities and has been shown to lower blood pressure in subjects with normal blood pressure.
Beetroot contains the bioactive agent betaine, which supports healthy liver function. When the liver is functioning properly, fats are broken down efficiently, aiding weight loss, and preventing fatigue and nausea.
