Chocolate Spelt Hazelnut Snacking Cake

This simple cake is great any time of day. It's dreamy after dinner with a glass of red wine, and feels special with coffee in the morning. Serve it with a small scoop of ice cream, a drizzle of hazelnut oil, and a sprinkle of Maldon salt for a more dressed up dessert.


1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa

1/2 cup hot coffee

2/3 cups spelt flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

2 eggs

2/3 cups hazelnut oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat your oven to 325º.
