I love birthdays.
In my family, ever since I was a little girl, we have always had the tradition of birthday breakfast.
The best parts about birthday breakfast?
Waking up to a festively set table, time together in the morning when no one is rushing and, of course, a far more elaborate breakfast than the average day.
As a chef, I can’t help but remember each of the foods that my family members likes and dislikes.
We celebrated my Mom’s birthday a while back, and in honor of her special day I decided to use all of my mom’s favorite sweets — hazelnuts, chocolate, coconut and “dry, Italian almond cake” as inspiration for one, crumbly, delicious birthday cake.
This cake comes out with a deep caramel flavor from the coconut sugar/hazelnut combination, the nutella is the perfect complimentary icing, and I highly recommend topping it all off with some coconut whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Needless to say, my mom loved it and I think you will too!
