  • 300 grams of hazelnuts
  • 180 grams of softened unsalted butter
  • 100 grams of sugars
  • 5 eggs (separated into yolks and whites)

Ingredients for the topping

  • 100 grams of milk chocolate coating
  • 100 grams of white chocolate coating
  • Unpeeled and whole hazelnuts to decorate


  1. Melt the bitter chocolate in a water bath. Let cool and preheat the oven to 300C°.
  2. Finely grind half of the hazelnuts. Cream the butter with the melted chocolate and sugar.
  3. Add the yolks one by one and continue beating. Then incorporate the flour together with the previously sifted baking powder, the ground hazelnuts and the liquor. Beat the whites to the point of meringue with the pinch of salt and integrate carefully and with the help of a fork stirring, but they are beating.
  4. Pour into a mold with a hole in the center, greased and floured and bake at 175C° for about 40-45 minutes. Check the cooking and when it is ready, turn the cake over and let it rest.


Cover with the chocolate coatings (previously melted separately) as a coating, alternating the two chocolates so that they form betas. Immediately before it cools place the hazelnuts so that they stick to the chocolate.
