  • Easy
  • 15 minutes
  • 1 hour


  • 6 free-range eggs
  • 660 g caster sugar
  • 1 cup sunflower oil
  • 140 g brown rice flour
  • 140 g cake flour
  • 1 T baking powder

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Grease a 30 cm bunt cake tin.
Whisk the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add all remaining ingredients besides the cinnamon sugar and mix lightly to combine.
Pour into the prepared cake tin and bake for an hour, or until a skewer comes out clean.
Leave to cool in the tin, then, carefully run the blade of a blunt or palate knife around the inside of the tin to loosen the cake and remove it from the mould.
Serve dusted with cinnamon sugar and dressed with the roasted hazelnuts.

    Very nice, moist and sweet cake! Although we added less sugar, it didn’t make it worse, only better to our taste. Thank you for such a nice recipe!
