Last Friday night, on one of the rare occasions that I actually left the house, I went out for dinner to my new favorite restaurant on Capitol Hill - Omega Ouzeri. The food is Greek with a Pacific Northwest flair.
A light moist cake, with a tender crumb. The hazelnuts are ground down with the flour, creating more of a fine hazelnut crumb rather than pieces of hazelnuts dispersed throughout. The addition of orange zest is what really through it over the top for me. I am pretty content eating this cake on it's own for breakfast, or classing it up with chocolate pudding and whipped cream for dessert.
