    THE NEXT DAY

    - Put the hazelnuts in the TM bowl and roast 3 - 5 minutes, Varoma, speed 1. Set aside in a muslin towel, leave to cool, then cover and rub till the outer shell peels off. Return peeled, hazelnuts to the TM bowl and chop coarsely 10 seconds, speed 7. Set aside.

    - Break the chocolate into pieces, put in the TM bowl, chop coarsely 10 seconds, speed 7. Set aside.

    - Preheat oven to 150°C (130°C fan forced oven). Grease and line the base and side of four 2 pound loaf tins with baking paper, bringing paper 3cm above edge of pan.

    - Put the dark brown sugar into the TM bowl and mill, 50 seconds speed 8.

    - Add the chopped butter to the TM bowl, then combine with the sugar 30 seconds, speed 6.

    - Add the butter mixture to the fruit mixture with the chocolate, hazelnuts, combined flours and cocoa powder. Use a wooden spoon to stir until well combined.

    - Spoon mixture into the prepared loaf tins and use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface. Bake in preheated oven for 2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven. Brush the top of the hot cake with extra frangelico. Cover with foil and set aside in pan to cool completely.

Tip

THIS RECIPE IS AN ADAPTATION OF THE INDUGLENT HAZELNUT CHOCOLATE CHRISTMAS CAKE AS FEATURED ON TASTE.COM.AU

I used 4 loaf tins, but if you wish you can use bigger round tins - check baking times according to the size of the tin (you could make for instance just one big cake so the baking time will increase).

I did not use the Spatula to cream the butter and sugar as I did not think it was necessary however if you wish to use it remember to not go above speed 4.
