Cake from the Stone Age

Yeah, cake probably dates back to the Stone Age. That sounds rather unlikely, but to prove it, we provide a recipe that we found on the net. It was written by Birgit Hedemann, an author who deals with the topics Stone Age, nature, etc.. It is impossible to trace where she got the recipe from, but you can find out more on her website: birgithedemann

Hazelnut cake from the Stone Age could have been made from eggs, ground hazelnuts, honey and currant leaves. Pour five cups of ground hazelnuts into a bowl, add two eggs and five spoonfuls of honey and mix the ingredients into a dough. Pick 20 fresh leaves with long stems from a currant bush, wash them and dry them. Then put half a tablespoon of dough on the leaf, fold the sides of the leaf towards the middle and fold the tip downwards. The petiole is pierced through the tip of the leaf. In the Stone Age the whole thing was baked on hot stones, today you can do this quietly in the oven at 175 degrees. About 15 minutes long.

Here again the recipe step by step in the overview:

Ingredients: 5 tablespoons honey, 5 cups ground hazelnuts, 2 eggs

You also need:  A cup, a mixing bowl, a tablespoon and about 20 leaves of currant bush (alternatively baking paper).

Beat the two eggs in the bowl and add the honey, mix well.

Then add the ground hazelnuts. Mix everything well again.

Wash the currant leaves and dry them well. If you don’t have any leaves, cut squares of baking paper, about 7 x 7 cm.

Now put half a tablespoon of dough in the middle of the sheet or paper.

Beat the edges to the middle and make a packet out of it.

Place the packages on a baking tray with the seam down.

Bake them for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 175 degrees.

After baking, remove the leaves or the paper! Enjoy.
