Hazelnut Cake with Lemon Zest

This weekend is packed.  In two hours I will serve at the elderly lunch.  Only a few elderly remain since another church offers slightly cheaper meal with choices of main dishes. 

Then I will meet my investment consultant.  It’s a year after I have stopped my monthly investment since the redundancy.  See if it is a good timing to reinvest.

Next will be the church service and cell group.  The regular meeting forms a rapport and bond between us.  It is dear to have friends around.   

Tomorrow will be another round of the rehearsal of the street performance for the Good Friday.  I will act as one of the women following Jesus.  We rehearsed last night.  It’s not easy to remain sorrow all through.  Hope the atmosphere on the day will help all actors/actress live in the respective character.

Well, let’s grasp time to make a simple cake for breakfast. 

125g ground hazelnut
60g butter
90g brown sugar
2 eggs, separated
Zest of 1 lemon
Preheat the oven to 150ºC. 

Cream the butter and brown sugar until a bit pale.  Add egg yolk one after one and mix well.  Blend in the ground hazelnut and lemon zest. 

Beat the egg whites until they become stiff.  Fold in half of the egg white.  Mix well.  Fold in the rest.    Bake for 40 – 60 minutes.    Let the cake cool a bit.   A few blueberries on top were placed on top as a simple delight.

I enjoyed a piece with coffee macchiato.
