FOR THE CAKE: – 3 cups (360g) all-purpose flour – 1 & 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon* – 1 teaspoon salt – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, softened – 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar – 1 cup (200g) firmly packed light brown sugar – 4 large egg – 1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 1 cup (237ml) milk – 3/4 cup (86g) chopped hazelnuts, toasted (plus more for garnish if you like)** FOR THE GLAZE: – 1/4 cup (56g) unsalted butter – 4 ounces (113g) cream cheese, at room temperature – 1/3 cup (36g) confectioners' sugar, sifted – 1/4 to 1/3 (59 to 79ml) cup warm milk – chopped toasted hazelnuts, for garnish

MAKE THE CAKE: Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously grease a 10- or 12-cup Bundt pan***. Mix flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and soda. Set aside. 

Step 1


Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar until fluffy with a medium-speed electric mixer. After adding each egg, mix well. Mix in vanilla. 

Step 2

Lower mixer speed. Three portions of flour mixture and two portions of milk are added. Just combine. Mix in hazelnuts. 

Step 3

Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake 50–60 minutes until a pick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Flip the cake onto a plate to cool. 

Step 4

MAKE GLAZE: Place butter in a medium skillet or saucepan. Butter should melt and foam over medium heat. 

Step 5

Cook, stirring occasionally, until brown specks form at the bottom of the pan and the butter smells nutty. 

Step 6

Mix butter, including browned bits, in a bowl. Wait an hour for the butter to solidify. Mix cream cheese with cooled brown butter.  

Step 7

Whip butter and cream cheese on medium speed with an electric mixer. Add confectioners' sugar and mix well. 

Step 8

Add 1/4 cup milk and mix well. Add milk slowly until the glaze is thick but pourable. Glaze the cake after cooling. Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts over glaze if desired.
