Chocolate Hazelnut Cake Recipe

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line two 8-inch rounds with a round of parchment paper at the bottom, butter, and dust with cocoa.
  2. Combine the flour, ground hazelnuts, SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, oil, eggs, and hazelnut extract.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  5. Add the brewed coffee and mix to combine.
  6. Add half of the mixture to each cake round.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pans for 30 minutes. Use a knife to separate the cake from the pan and turn the cakes out onto a rack to completely cool.
  8. While waiting for the cake to cool, make your frosting. Combine the powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Add the butter and mix to combine. Add in the hazelnut extract and milk, one tablespoon at a time until the frosting reaches your desired consistency.
  9. To frost the cake, add one of the cakes to a plate, flat side up.
  10. Add a thin layer of frosting to the top of the cake and frost evenly with an offset icing spatula.
  11. Place the second cake on top, rounded side up. Frost the cake with the remaining frosting.
