This is my cousin's recipe. A 'cake' in Swiss is traditionally one made in a loaf pan. This is a good coffee cake.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and salt, beat until you have a pale mass.
  2. Add the vanilla sugar and the milk.
  3. While stirring add the flour, the baking powder and the nut crumbs.
  4. Cut the chocolate into small pieces and mix in (I pulse briefly in a food processor).
  5. If you use a cake tin of 25 cm you have to bake it for about 45 minutes on 180°C A shorter pan will make a taller loaf.

Was going to make this as a gift, then decided to keep it for myself! Made it in a 9-inch loaf pan & that worked out just fine! Loved the combo of hazelnuts & DARK chocolate here, & I set up the initial servings topped with a small scoop of frozen yogurt AND a spoonful of Honey, Walnut, and Dried-Fruit Topping (Gift in a Jar) that I'd made a few days ago! Thanks for a recipe worth making again! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #20]
