    Sweet Baboo's Note:

    This is a quick and delicious recipe that I have changed to suit my family's needs, but feel free to use sugar in the cake, and the optional Mocha Filling and optional Topping which I shall include at the bottom if you want the standard recipe. I have also substituted 7/8 cup of almonds and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract successfully for the hazelnuts. If you prefer, you can use 3/4 cup of Splenda, and eliminate the fructose, but I think it helps with the structure of the cake. I guessed at the weight of the sugar-free instant pudding mix, and the Dream Whip envelope, but I think they are all a standard size...this filling can be used to frost a cake too...just refrigerate after you apply it.

      Oh my gosh, what a delectably wonderful torte with the light chocolate and hazelnut tastes melding together for a perfect taste sensation. This is a rather light dessert (not heavy and overly-sweet), so it should appeal to even those who tend to shy away from rich desserts. I finely chopped some extra toasted hazelnuts, which I used to dust the top, for an extra touch of hazelnut. Next time I make this, I'll dust the sides with finely chopped hazelnuts, too. Thanks for a fantastic recipe, Sweet Baboo.
