How to make it

  • CAKE:
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease bottom and sides of 2 round pans, 9" x 1 1/2" with shortening. Line bottoms of pans with waxed paper or parchment paper.
  • Melt chocolate chips and butter in heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly; cool 5 min. Stir in flour until smooth. Stir in egg yolks until well blended.
  • Beat egg whites in large bowl with electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until soft peaks form. Fold chocolate mixture into egg whites. Fold in toasted hazelnuts. Spread in pans.
  • Bake about 25 min. or until tops of cakes appear dry and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 min. Run knife along side of each cake to loosen; remove from pan to wire rack. Remove waxed paper. Cool completely.
  • Prepare Chocolate Truffle Filling (instructions below). Spread 2/3 c. of the filling on bottom layer. Top with other layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining filling. Drizzle with any remaining filling and garnish with hazelnuts.
  • CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE FILLING:
  • Heat chocolate chips and butter in heavy 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted; remove from heat.
  • Stir in whipping cream. Refrigerate 30 - 40 minutes, stirring frequently, just until thick enough to mound and hold its shape when dropped from a spoon. (If filling becomes too thick, microwave on High (100%) 10 - 15 seconds to soften.)
