I do not think that this cake needs a long introduction, I believe the pictures speak for themselves. This is indeed an extraordinary cake in both terms of outstanding flavor and the quickness of whipping together.
Chocolate and hazelnut is a perfect combination, but I am not the first to discover this of course. At first I named it "Nutella Cake" but later when I made the ought to be chocolate and hazelnut spread (Nutella) at home it became clear to me that real Nutella sitting on the shelves of the markets has not much to do with chocolate and less to do with hazelnut paste. This cake however is utterly chocolaty and hazelnutty, which flavors are so overwhelming and utterly unique together, that I would trade my old understanding of what Nutella is for this one any time. And after tasting this cake, you will say the same I am sure. :)
