"This cake originates from the Piedmont region of Italy where hazelnuts are grown. It is a fairly plain looking cake but you can dress it up with a dusting of powdered sugar or serve with fresh berries and whipped cream. Serve warm or at room temp. I've posted the recipe in metric units with the US units after the ingredient . My recipe source doesn't specify cake pan size from the picture I saw it looks 9" , if you go with 8" for a taller cake you may need to cook slightly longer or if I'm wrong , slightly less for the 9"."
