This cake is naturally gluten-free, as it's made with hazelnut flour and almond flour. It's also very easy to whip up. You don't need any fancy equipment to make it — no scale, no stand mixer — just two bowls and a little arm strength! Once you've combined the wet and dry ingredients, you simply pat the dough into a parchment-lined cake pan and set it in the oven to bake.
Once the cake has cooled completely, you can move on to the fun part: decorating it! The author, Molly Yeh, piped a decorative border around her cake and wrote out the word "Yay!" in buttercream. While this is a super-cute idea, feel free to decorate it however you'd like.
When you bring this cake to the table and start passing out slices, your guests are sure to be both delighted and surprised by this Passover-friendly dessert. I mean, it's a giant cookie! What's not to love?
