How to prepare:

Preheat the oven to 175C/350F (fan oven 160C/310F).

Beat the butter creamy and add alternately sugar, orange grater and eggs. Mix cornstarch and baking powder and sift over the butter. Fold carefully in with a wooden spoon and add bit by bit the ground hazelnuts.

Grease a baking pan, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and spoon the batter in.

Bake the cake 45 minutes and let cool on a wire rack.

Beat for the glaze the butter creamy and add alternately icing sugar and cocoa. Dissolve the powder coffee in 1-2 tablespoons hot water and mix with the glaze.

Spread the cake with glaze and divide the hazelnuts so every piece will get a nut when the cake is cut.
