A few weeks ago, I came across a recipe for a hazelnut cake that started with a yellow cake mix. I thought I saved it, but can't find it anywhere. I don't recall if I found it on CC or another site, but now a Google search doesn't turn up anything. Does this recipe sound familiar to anyone or do you have a recipe you could share?
I have never seen it, but I would love to have it if anyone comes up with a tested recipe.
Hi ~ I just found the following online for a hazelnut cake & icing:
Hazelnut Vanilla Cake
1 7/8 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
5 oz hazelnuts
¼ cup double strength FlavorCoffee Hazelnut Vanilla Coffee (cooled)
or ¼ teaspoon FlavorCoffee Hazelnut Gourmet Flavor and ¼ cup milk
1 ½ cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup melted butter, cooled
Preheat oven to 350OF. Lightly grease a 9x9 pan or a 10 round pan.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Process the hazelnuts until ground in a food processor and add to flour mixture.
In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, coffee (or gourmet flavor and milk), sugar, and vanilla extract for about 3 minutes. Add the butter and mix.
Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix well. Spread batter into the greased pan.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool completely before icing. In the meantime, prepare the butter icing.
½ up butter
4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons sugar
½ tablespoon double strength FlavorCoffee Hazelnut Vanilla Coffee
or 3 drops FlavorCoffee Hazelnut Gourmet Flavor
Microwave butter in a microwave-safe bowl, until melted. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted.
In a small bowl, beat egg, sugar, and coffee (or gourmet flavor) until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add to the chocolate mixture and stir well. Refrigerate until thickened, stirring occasionally. Spread over cooled cake.
Decorate cake immediately after icing with1 oz whole hazelnuts or hazelnut halves, or sprinkle with 1 oz ground hazelnuts.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
