  • 300 g of butter soft
  • 180 g of sugar
  • 5 medium-sized eggs
  • 150 g of wheat flour
  • 150 g of ground almonds or hazelnuts
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 50 g of cocoa
  • 80 g of grated chocolate
  • 250 g of chocolate icing


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees top and bottom heat. Grease a large box cake tin (approx. 28 cm) and dust with flour. Alternatively, you can also use a springform pan, but the baking time may then have to be adjusted.
  • For the dough, beat the softened butter with the sugar until frothy, stir in the eggs one at a time. Slowly add the flour mixed with the almonds, baking powder, salt and baking cocoa; Finally fold in the grated chocolate.
  • Pour the dough into the prepared pan and smooth it out. Bake for about 50 to 60 minutes. Make a chopstick test. The cake can (and should) be a little moist inside. Let the cake cool in the pan, then turn it out. Cover with chocolate icing.
