Chocolate Hazelnut Cake


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup hazelnut flour*
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup processed cocoa powder sifted
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • melted chocolate (for cake pops)
  • chocolate sprinkles/ chocolate chips etc for decor


  • Preheat oven to 350 F, grease round baking pans and dust with cocoa powder. Line bottoms with parchment.
  • Place all dry ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Stir to combine.
  • In a medium bowl whisk all wet ingredients (pour hot water in slowly while whisking as not to cook the eggs).
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and mix on medium for 2-3 mins. Batter will be very thin.
  • Pour evenly into prepared pans. I used a kitchen scale to ensure the batter is evenly distributed.
  • Bake until a cake tester comes out mostly clean, a total of 30-35 mins.
  • Cut out the middle part of the cake and make some cake pops using it.
  • Coat the cake pops with chocolate. Decorate according to your preference.
  • Place those cake-pops in the center of the cake. And decorate the cake with your favorite chocolates/ sprinkles/chocolate chips.
