A beautiful rich chocolate cake recipe, originally Norwegian. The hazelnuts complement the chocolate perfectly.
I made this cake for my husband's birthday, and he rated it as better than German chocolate, which has been his favorite since I have known him! Thanks for the new and interesting recipe. I will make it again! - 06 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Wow! I can not believe more members and visitors to allrecipes.com have not tried this keeper. I found it easy to make, great looking and great tasting. The chocolate glaze compliments this nicely nutty cake in such a pretty way that it makes it wonderful for entertaining. - 17 May 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
One of the best, quickest and child friendliest recipes ever. My kids and me loved it, we just ate it in 2 hours, this says a lot, they usually dont like sweet stuff. The kids I babysit love it too. - 09 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
