RECIPE PREPARATION Check with apple puree and chocolate:

Apple puree:

Peel 2 apples and put them to boil in water for about 2-3 minutes, until they soften a little. Drain the water and pass through the blender. Allow to cool.


Mix the chopped hazelnuts with sugar, cocoa, grated chocolate, flour and melted butter.


Mix the butter with the oil and sugar, add the eggs, mixing in turn. Add the apple puree mixed with the yogurt and then the flour mixed with baking soda, baking powder and cocoa. Mix all ingredients well to result in a soft dough.

Grease a form with oil and cover with caster sugar.

Even if I used this trick with some distrust ....

It turned out to work great!

The sugar gives shine to the cake and is even easier to remove from the form.

Pour half of the dough composition, put the filling, pour the rest of the dough, and put the chopped hazelnuts on top.

Put the tray in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

The check is tested if it is done with a toothpick.

Allow to cool and remove from the mold.

Decorate with melted chocolate.
