Recipe category





for a springform pan of 20 cm

Preparation time

more than 60 minutes


Menge Zutat
175 g butter
150 g dark Chocolate, in pieces
200 g Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream
150 g cane sugar
6 eggs, separated
125 g ground hazelnuts
25 g crushed hazelnuts
some butter and flour for greasing
icing sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius circulating air. Grease the springform pan with butter and sprinkle with a little flour.

  2. Melt the chocolate, Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream, cane sugar and butter in a large pot at low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the ground hazelnuts. Then add the egg yolks and mix.

  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff, add to the chocolate mixture and fold in carefully. 

  4. Put the mixture into the prepared springform pan and sprinkle with the chopped hazelnuts. Then bake for 50 - 60 minutes until the surface is crispy but the inside of the cake is still soft. After half the baking time, cover the cake with aluminium foil so that it does not get too dark.

  5. Let the cake cool down completely and then remove it from the springform pan.

  6. Sprinkle with icing sugar as required before serving.


    Tip: The cake tastes very juicy the next day and can be kept in the refrigerator for up to three days.
