Add all remaining cake ingredients and blend 30–40 sec/speed 8.


Pour into prepared tin and set aside.


Meringue: Place egg whites, cornflour and salt into a clean, dry mixing bowl and beat with hand held whisk or electric beater until foamy.


Slowly add sugar a little at a time until you have a glossy meringue.


Add the chopped hazelnuts and chocolate to meringue and fold through using a spatula until just blended.


Spread on top of cake in a swirling pattern and bake for an hour and 20 minutes or until meringue is cooked and a skewer comes out clean.


Cool in tin completely before removing.
