The combination of toatsed hazelnuts, smoky bacon and woody aromatic rosemary gives this savory "cake/bread" a sophisticated flavour. The cake may look complicated but it's easier than you think. It's highly adaptable, very delicious and perfect to serve with a seasonal salad for a pleasant lunch. If you don't have a bundt pan, then use muffin tin or loaf pan.

  • 100 g Hazelnuts (or any other nuts)
  • 100 g Bacon bits (or ham)
  • 1 tsp Rosemary leaves, chopped (thyme is great too)
  • 300 g Refined spelt flour (or plain flour)
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 package / 7 g Active dried yeast
  • 1/3 tsp Black lava salt
  • 1 tsp Honey (or maple syrup)
  • 350 ml Sparkling water, at room-temperature
  1. Coarsely chop the hazelnuts. Place them in a dry heavy skillet. Stir often over medium heat until golden brown and aromatic. Cook the bacon bits in a small pan until crisp. Drain bacon bits on paper towels. Mix together hazelnuts, reserving one tablespoon for the bundt pan, bacon bits and chopped rosemary. Set aside.
  2. Grease a 24-26cm bundt cake pan with butter and sprinkle the reserved chopped hazelnuts all over.
  3. Whisk together spelt flour, baking powder, and dried yeast in a mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl or jar, stir together the salt, honey and sparkling water. Add to the flour mixture. Use a hand mixer to beat everything together. Fold the nut-bacon mixture into the batter until just incorporated. The finished batter is thick but still pourable.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Cover with a plastic film and leave it at a warm place for 30 minutes.
  5. Place a baking tray with boiling water at the bottom of the oven and preheat to 200C/400F. Bake the bread in the middle of hot oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Remove and set aside for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

That's a great looking bundt. I guess that's what I'd call it, since it's baked in a bundt pan. Really unique recipe -- always fun to try something different. Thanks!

Ooh that looks so smart, lovely idea. Delicious too. I've often used hazelnuts in bread, but now wondering why I've never used rosemary before.
