Hazelnut chocolate cake

Hazelnut chocolate cake

I love this hazelnut chocolate cake because without icing is perfect to serve for breakfast and, with dark chocolate icing, it becomes a dessert.

Kamut and hazelnut flours give a gentle and particular softness to a fragrant  cake that keeps it soft for a few days. High quality butter, bought at a local farm, is the essential ingredient I used for icing.
