National Hazelnut Cake Day.

By Andrea Fasciano

June 1st is National Hazelnut Cake Day. It is commonly celebrated by indulging and giving in to our inner temptations for sweets, whether we are carefully watching our diets or not. This national tradition lured me into discovering the best places in New Jersey to help satisfy my craving.

Sometimes cooking is a hassle. However, there are many great places to buy Hazelnut cake. So, for all the Hazelnut Cake lovers out there, here are some bakeries around the Garden State that offer this delicious cake.

Dough Artisan Pizzeria

If you’re on the hunt for a #HipNJ place to eat, Dough Artisan Pizzeria in Caldwell may be the hidden gem you’ve been searching for!

This homey spot puts the “garden” in “Garden State“.  Owner and chef Ed Simmons has adopted a  “farm to table philosophy”, which means sourcing the finest & freshest local ingredients for their unique dishes.  Dough partners with local farmers, and strives to promote sustainability within the community.

“I feel I separate myself with my passion [for hand-crafted cuisine] and creativity,” Ed explained.

#HipNJ’s Peter Falzo got an exclusive tour of Dough and experienced their authentic dining experience firsthand.  Peter sampled Dough’s exquisite ricotta gnocchi in their fresh house sauce (“Excellent, not too sweet!”) and mouth-watering, brick oven pizza.

The two chatted about why Ed chose Caldwell as his business’ home.

“Caldwell is a great town, lots of families.  [It] has great plans for downtown, and I have a good feeling it’s going to be the next Montclair,” Simmons predicted.
