Fat-free skim milk

1 cup(s)

Regular instant coffee powder

2 tbsp(s)

Dark brown sugar

1 cup(s)


2 medium

Self-rising flour

1½ cup(s)

All-purpose flour

½ cup(s)

Shelled hazelnuts

¼ cup(s), toasted, coarsely chopped

Sweetened condensed milk

½ cup(s)

Unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tbsp(s), Dutch variety


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the base and sides of a 22cm-round springform pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place margarine, skim milk and coffee in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the margarine has melted and the coffee has dissolved. Remove from heat. Whisk in the sugar until dissolved. Whisk in the eggs until combined. Stir in the combined four and half of the hazelnuts until just combined.
  3. Pour into prepared tin. Bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk the condensed milk and cocoa in a small saucepan over low heat until smooth and heated through.
  5. Transfer the cake onto a serving plate. Drizzle with hot chocolate sauce and sprinkle with the remaining hazelnut.
  6. Serving size: 1 slice of cake


For an intense flavour, we’ve used dark brown sugar and Dutch cocoa. For a more subtle flavour, use light brown sugar and regular baking cocoa powder.
