I haven't made hazelnut cake too often, so I make my own hazelnut flour. But now it's getting requested more and I am sick of making it. I buy a pound of hazelnuts, bake them for about 10 minutes to loosen the skins, then go through this tedious process of rubbing them vigorously between two kitchen towels. Then I give em a whirl in the food processor. So I am getting sick of this. I can't find hazelnut flour in stores. (Not even almond flour!) I can't even find blanched hazelnuts! Where can I get this stuff without having to purchase huge bags of it? I'm sure if I looked around hard enough, I could find specialty shops that carried nut flours, but I knew of a place that sold it a while ago, and they sold almond flour for $11.00/pound. Forget that!
