Baking with nuts is a great way to add some flavor and texture to your cake recipes and easy desserts. But like any ingredient, it is important to know the best way to prepare the ingredient before you using. When it comes to using nuts in your cake recipes and easy desserts you will want to know which nut is best to use, depending on the cake recipe you are making. The following are just some of the nuts you might use in your favorite dessert recipes and cake recipes and which ones work best. Walnuts. Walnuts are a nut that has a mild, buttery flavor that makes them perfect for baking into cake recipes and cookies. Walnuts have a high oil content, so they tend to toast much quicker than other varieties of nuts. Because of this, you will want to use raw walnuts to prevent them from burning during the baking process. To add an even stronger flavor to your cookie recipes, you can try using chopped black walnuts. Black walnuts have a more savory flavor than regular walnuts, which makes them perfect for cookies made with sweet ingredients such as white chocolate and toffee. Pecans. Pecans are a popular baking ingredient in the south. Pecans are a nut that develops a rich flavor, and a brittle, crunchy texture when they are baked. Pecan halves work great in cookie recipes and pies, or you can grind them up with some butter and sugar to create a decadent gluten-free pie crust recipe.

Hazelnuts. Whole hazelnuts are an excellent addition to dessert recipes but are actually one of the most time-intensive nuts to prepare. Before using hazelnuts, you’ll need to remove the skin first, which can become bitter and flaky when they are baked. To do this, start by toasting the hazelnuts for about eight minutes at 250 degrees F, then use a clean kitchen towel to help rub the hazelnut skin off. Since hazelnuts are a nut that has a lower oil content than other nuts, it’s okay to toast them before you bake with them. Use whole hazelnuts to garnish your fancy dessert recipes or cake recipes because they have such a uniform, round shape. Hazelnuts are a variety that pairs best with chocolate, which makes them great to use for chocolate nut butter or truffle fillings. Almonds. Hazelnuts are one of the most versatile nuts for baking; you can use raw almonds for anything from a gluten-free flour substitute to topping shortbread recipes.
