Coffee Glazed Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

Coffee Glazed Chocolate Cake
Whenever I see chocolate and hazelnuts together, I get this tingly feeling inside. Especially true if it comes in the form of a cake! It is #InternationalWomensDay today I am treating myself well with this. And why not really? This cake is 100% whole wheat and #vegan, with no refined sugars. Perfectly moist and absolutely delicious. I will be off to have another slice and another cup of coffee with it. Here is the recipe:

Coffee cream
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup espresso or 3 teaspoons instant coffee mixed with ¼ cup hot water]
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon rum or coffee liqueur optional
Dry ingredients
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped roasted hazelnuts
  • pinch of salt
Wet ingredients
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
Coffee cream
  1. Put all the coffee cream ingredients in a food processor and mix them well.
  2. Let it wait in the fridge for about 4 hours or overnight.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (175C).
  2. Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl, mix and set a side.
  3. Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
  4. Add the liquid and dry mixes together and combine.
  5. Pour the batter in a cake mold that is lightly coated with oil. I used a 5in by 7in (~13cm by 18cm) loaf pan.
  6. Bake for about 45- 50 minutes. Keep an eye on it during baking and do the toothpick test (toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake should come out clean) to judge when it is done.
  7. When the cake is at room temperature, spread the coffee cream on top, or serve the cream along with the cake

  1. This looks SO beautiful and delicious – may I even say moist? I know people hate that word :p The coffee cream especially is something I need a litre jar of, at the very least 😀

    1. Thank you Margaux! Do people hate the word “moist” 🙂 I will take that over a dry cake any time. Yeah, the coffee cream on this one was the bomb. Tastes a lot like caramel, only better because coffee! <3

      1. Just tried this recipe today… I use 3/4 cup oat flour and 1/4 cup almond flour, coconut milk and almond butter and it was so delicious!!!
