Now these recipes really appealed to me. But I have one question. How do you remember what recipes you have mailed to Dave? I trade with lots of people and I fear I might be sending the people on Dave's list the same ones over and over and over.....hope not. Terry * Exported from MasterCook Mac * Dolce Torino/Torta Gianduja Recipe By : Viviane Buzzi Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00 Categories : Cake Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -------- ------------ -------------------------------- 1/3 cup hazelnuts 1/2 cup sugar 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate 6 eggs 3 egg yolks 1/2 tablespoon honey 1/4 pound butter 1 teaspoon vanilla 3/4 cup flour plus 3/4 cup cake flour or use 1 1/2 cups minus 1 1/2 T flour 6 tablespoons heavy cream 1 tablespoon apricot jam 7 ounces sweetened chocolate 3 tablespoons marachino liqueur 2 tablespoons brandy Toast the hazelnuts in the oven and remove the outer skins. Melt 1 Tbsp of the sugar in a small saucepan and add the toasted hazelnuts to it. Process or pound this combination to a smooth hazelnut paste. Melt 3oz/85g of the unsweetened chocolate and set aside. Whisk together the 6 eggs, 3 egg yolks, and all but 1 Tbsp of the remaining sugar until foamy and thick. Do this with the bowl standing over a saucepan full of warm water; don't allow the water to get any more than body temperature, or the cake will be spoiled. Add the honey, remove from the heat, and continue to beat until completely cool and thickened. Place the butter, melted chocolate, vanilla, and hazelnut paste in another bowl over a pan full of hot water or in the top of a double boiler and stir until smoothly mixed together. Sift the flour and cake flour into the egg, sugar and honey mixture and fold in very carefully and gently. Then fold in the chocolate-hazelnut mixture. Pour this into two buttered and floured 9-inch/23cm cake pans and place in a preheated 190C/375F oven. Bake for about 40 minutes. When the cakes are done, lift out of the oven and turn out onto a clean cloth, where they can be left to cool. Put the remaining 5oz/140g unsweetened chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water or in the top of a double boiler, add the cream, and stir until smooth. As soon as it begins to boil, remove from the heat and pour into a bowl to cool, stirring occasionally to prevent a skin from forming on the top. Put the apricot jam in a small saucepan and add the remaining 1 Tbsp sugar. Stir over low heat until melted, then set aside in a warm place. Melt the sweetened chocolate and also set aside in a warm place. Whip the cream and chocolate mixture until stiff. Place the cooled cakes on a serving platter with a sheet of wax paper underneath. Slice off the hard crust. Mix the liqueur with the brandy and paint half of it all over one of the cakes. Spread three-quarters of the chocolate cream over the same cake, then put the other cake on top, so that the two form a single cake. Paint the top of the cake with the remaining liqueur, then coat the cake completely with apricot jam. Spread with the sweetened chocolate and decorate with the remaining chocolate cream. Remove the wax paper before serving. Do not put the cake in the refrigerator, but keep it in a cool place until ready to serve. This cake is traditionally baked in a round pan and has "Gianduja" or "Gianduia" written across it with melted chocolate. Viviane's Note: If you cannot get unsweetened chocolate, substitute bittersweet chocolate and reduce the amount of sugar. I would maybe use about 3/4 cup of sugar (half the suggested amount) but it depends on how sweet you like it to be.

Toast the hazelnuts in the oven and remove the outer skins.
Melt 1
Tbsp of the
sugar in a small saucepan and add the toasted hazelnuts
to it. Process or pound this combination to a
smooth hazelnut paste.
Melt 3oz/85g of the unsweetened chocolate and set aside. Whisk
together the 6
eggs, 3 egg yolks, and all but 1 Tbsp of the remaining
sugar until foamy and thick. Do this with the bowl standing over a
saucepan full of warm water; don't allow the water to get any more
than
body temperature, or the cake will be spoiled. Add the honey,
remove from the heat, and continue to
beat until completely cool and
thickened.
Place the
butter, melted chocolate, vanilla, and hazelnut paste in
another bowl over a
pan full of hot water or in the top of a double
boiler and stir until smoothly mixed together.
Sift the flour and
cake flour into the egg, sugar and honey mixture
and fold in very carefully and gently. Then fold in the
chocolate-hazelnut mixture. Pour this into two buttered and floured
9-inch/23cm
cake pans and place in a preheated 190C/375F oven. Bake
for about 40 minutes. When the cakes are done, lift out of the oven
and turn out onto a
clean cloth, where they can be left to cool.
Put the remaining 5oz/140g unsweetened
chocolate in a bowl over a
pan of hot water or in the top of a double boiler, add the cream,
and stir until
smooth.
As soon as it begins to
boil, remove from the heat and pour into a
bowl to cool, stirring occasionally to prevent a
skin from forming on
the top.
Put the
apricot jam in a small saucepan and add the remaining 1 Tbsp
sugar. Stir over low heat until melted, then set aside in a warm place.
Melt the sweetened chocolate and also set aside in a warm place.
Whip the cream and chocolate mixture until stiff. Place the cooled

Slice
off the hard

so that the two form a single

jam. Spread with the sweetened chocolate and decorate with the
remaining
chocolate cream. Remove the wax paper before serving.
Do not put the
cake in the refrigerator, but keep it in a cool place
until ready to serve.
This
cake is traditionally baked in a round pan and has "Gianduja" or
"Gianduia" written across it with melted
chocolate.

Viviane's Note: If you cannot get unsweetened
chocolate, substitute
bittersweet
chocolate and reduce the amount of sugar. I would maybe
use about 3/4 cup of
sugar (half the suggested amount) but it
depends on how
sweet you like it to be.
