0.25 teaspoon cardamom

1 Zest of 1 lemon

2 free range eggs

0.25 cup vegetable oil (or coconut, olive, canola, etc – using a neutral flavoured oil is ideal if you do not want to change the flavour of the cake)

  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees and place hazelnuts on a tray. Roast them for about 8 minutes until the skins are peeling off and they are fragrant.
