Rich in hazelnut and chocolate flavor, this Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake combines cocoa powder and crushed hazelnuts into the cake batter for a rich chocolatey, nutty, and buttery tasting cake. Carbonated water and yeast add a bit of lift to the batter making this cake light and moist in texture. A Nutella and chocolate icing strewn with chopped almonds or hazelnuts is the crowning glory of this decadent and absolutely scrumptious cake. A must try if you are a chocolate lover.

This is the most decadent cake I have ever had. I have to try not to make it too much because I always have a big slice with fresh whipped cream, and it is terrible for my diet. Chocolate lovers have to try this cake though. The chopped hazelnuts and drizzled chocolate on top are better than any icing I have ever made. If you want to try something a little different, you can turn this cake in to cake pops.
