Was it a very rich cake? There's a pretty well circulated cake, often called gianduja torte or chocolate hazelnut torte which contains only five ingredients - hazelnuts, chocolate, sugar, butter and eggs. I love it as it is so rich it needs nothing more than a sprinkling of icing sugar (though you can ice it if you wish) and depending on how finely you crush the hazelnuts it can have a good nutty texture. :-)

My recipe is here (please excuse the train shape I baked it in - the cake works perfectly well in a normal tin too!): http://www.mrscake.co.nz/2010/12/chocolate-hazenut-torte-train-cake.html

Just a wee tip: as cocoa and coffee (freeze dried coffee is gluten free) can have gluten fillers the recipes without these ingredients would be the safer options for any gluten intolerant people.

I stock a Dutch Cocoa that is pure cocoa with no fillers - 21% fatcompared with supermarket brands (8-10% fat) which means it is much stronger - all the flavour is inthe fat. If people usePremiun Dutch -processed cocoas, they are gluten-free and quite safe as they have NO fillers. You paymore, but as well as the safety/quality factor, it tastes like chocolate, not cocoa.
