This is a superbly light and luxurious cake. I couldn't figure out when to put the cinnamon in, so I left it out, which was fine since I don't like cinnamon anyway

I have made this cake many times and we love it. Its moist and has a nice nutty flavor, I always use hazelnuts, but omit the chocolate so that its not too sweet.

Wow, this turned out wonderful. Everytime I bake something you can usually tell that it was homemade but this seemed like something from a 5 star hotel. The many steps weren't hard at all in practice, and I have a feeling we'll be making this often. Thanks for sharing!:)

This is a wonderful cake.I made it with hazelnuts.Typical German. I think one step was left out,to fold the egg yolk mixture in with the flour, beaten egg whites and nut-chocolete.

I followed this recipe exactly and it was wonderful. Tasted just like the one in Germany. U.S. chocolate bits aren't as good though!! ;o)
