Pont L'Evêque Cake with Hazelnuts

We discovered Pont L'Eveque  Cheese while visiting our friends in Normandy, France.

 Pont-l'Évêque is a French cheese, originally manufactured in the area around the commune of Pont-l'Évêque, between Deauville and Lisieux in the Calvados département of Basse-Normandie. It is probably the oldest Norman cheese still in production.[1]

Here's an unusual Cake made with Pont L'Eveque Cheese and Hazelnuts.

1 (7oz.) piece of Pont L'Eveque Cheese , cut into small pieces and roll in the 1 1/2 C of  flour.
1/2 C half and half
1/2 C whole milk
1/3 C whole Hazelnuts
2 TBS butter
1 1/2 C flour
2/3 C ground Hazelnuts
1 packet of baking powder (.5oz. or 14 grams) = 3 tsp.
3 eggs

In a medium bowl:
ground hazelnuts
baking powder
remaining flour after rolling the pieces of cheese
Season to taste with salt and pepper
Add half and half and milk.

Fold in whole Hazelnuts and pieces of Pont L'Eveque Cheese
Pour batter into a well buttered loaf pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 50 minutes.

Serve Warm

Peace in the Kitchen!
