This is a spectacular cake and you will be more than delighted to serve it on a special occasion. It looks amazing! Smells incredible and of course it is delish! (Would I lie to you?)
Hazelnuts and chocolate are a match made in heaven and this cake is full of both, it is moist because of the eggs and sour cream and to be honest if you wanted to make it gluten free you could sub in cornflour for the very small amount of regular flour that is in this cake! Enjoy some baking today!
