  • ½ tsp. Baking powder


  • ½ cup Orange marmalade
  • ¼ cup Brandy
  • 2 tbsp. Light brown sugar

The Torte

  • Process sugar and hazelnuts in a food processor until nuts are finely ground, 1 minute.
  • Add flour, baking powder, and salt; pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse sand, about 10 seconds. Add eggs, vanilla, and zest, and process until smooth, 10 seconds.
  • Transfer batter to prepared pan; spread batter evenly and smooth surface. Arrange nectarines, skin sides up, over surface of batter.
  • Bake torte until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with few crumbs, 40–45 minutes.
  • Run a knife around edges to loosen torte; let cool in pan on a rack to room temperature, about 30 minutes.

The Sauce

  • Cook marmalade, brandy, brown sugar, and orange juice in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until thick and syrupy, 10 minutes.
  • Remove cooled torte from pan, dust with powdered sugar, and serve with sauce.
