Professor's Chocolatecake (Professorns Chokladkaka)

Recipe by Chef Dudo

Yeah, yeah, I know, there are zillions of chocolatecakes on Zaar. This one though I remember from my youth in Sweden. Gooey, rich. What makes it Swedish? Maybe the hazelnuts. Why it is called Professor's? No idea, what's in a name?

This is really good. We cut it in squares, like brownies. My daughter needs a Swedish recipe for her heritage project, and this is perfect. It made the house smell amazing. Thanks for sharing.
