If you are not living in France and still longing for a Galette des Rois at 6th of January, don't worry, this recipe will save your day. The fun part with this cake is, that somewhere there is a hazelnut or figurine hiding. The person who gets it becomes king or queen of the day. In my family we're cheating by making several Galette des rois, starting already at Christmas. This way everyone has a higher chance of becoming king or queen. This recipe is made with hazelnut instead of almond as the original.
