This coffee cake is like no other: First, it's baked in a loaf pan for easy unmolding and slicing; second it is made with three different types of flour--all-purpose, almond flour, and corn flour--for a more interesting taste and texture; third, it's run through with finely chopped toasted hazelnuts and chocolate chips; and finally, it has freshly brewed espresso baked right into the batter. It's great on its own or with the coffee creme anglaise in this recipe.

  • 150 grams sugar

  • 300 grams milk

  4. Pour the batter in a loaf pan, previously buttered and floured with cornflour.
  5. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove the cake from the oven and serve it warm with the coffee cream.
  7. Heat the milk with the heavy cream in a medium saucepan.

The batter for this cake uses 3 types of flour and chopped hazelnuts for texture. Then chocolate chips are added for sweetness. The star if this recipe, though, is the Creme Anglaise, a mixture of egg yolks, cream, sugar and coffee that perfectly compliments the chocolate and hazelnut in the cake.
