  • 40g hazelnut butter or other
  • 100g ground hazelnuts
  • 100g rice flour *
  • 50g cacao

  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 2-3 dates optional ~ 30g chocolate ( I used one with nougat filling)
  • More chocolate to top the cake about 50g


  • Mix all ingredients to a smooth dough. Chop the dates and the chocolate and fold them in. Pour the dough into a baking form ( oiled or prepared with baking sheet) and bake it for about 60 min ( 180°C/365°F upper/lower heat, preheated!). Test with a wooden stick etc. if it's ready! Then let it cool down, melt dark chocolate and spread it over the cake.
