  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
  6. When cool, dust top of cake with confectioners' sugar. Release from pan and serve.

Optional Decorating: Instead of dusting cake with confectioners' sugar, whip heavy cream until it holds its shape. Sprinkle it with confectioners' sugar and beat until firm. With pastry bag, pipe rosettes on top of cake and decorate with hazelnuts. Cake can also be decorated with whipped cream which has been flavored with rum and sugar.
