A great cake recipe for any occasion:
Chop the ginger into small cubes. Dissolve butter. Separate the eggs.
Cut marzipan into small cubes and beat with the whisks of a mixer together with egg yolks, cinnamon and salt until creamy. Whip 7 egg whites until stiff (use remaining egg whites for other purposes). Add the sugar and continue beating until the sugar has dissolved.
Pour the snow onto the marzipan-egg yolk cream. Sift flour and cocoa over it. Add the melted butter and the ginger cubes and fold in with a whisk.
Grease a cake springform pan (26 cm ø) and sprinkle with the hazelnuts. Pour in the ginger mixture and bake in a heated oven at 160 °C, fan 140 °C, gas mark 2 for about 60-70 minutes. Dust the cake pieces with a thin layer of cocoa.
Tip The underside of the cake also looks very nice due to the nuts. To serve, place every other piece upside down on the cake plate.
