Chocolate Black Tea Cake Recipe
This is an Austrian recipe that was passed on from one generation to the next in my family. The secret of this cake's full flavour and softness: Prepare it one day in advance before eating it!
This is a family recipe that's been made at Christmas time by at least 4 generations. This year will be the first for number 5!!! 'Bubba' brought it with her when she came from Lithuania. I pass it on in the true spirit of this season!
Oooh. This was fantastic. It's great to have for breakfast with coffee or tea and is quite filling. Doesn't need frosting or anything of the sort but this isn't a sweet birthday cake! I was a bit nervous that it'd be too sweet when I measured out the sugar but once the batter was ready and it already smelled heavenly I knew this would be good. I used Ghirardelli's cocoa powder and plain old black tea. Didn't have that much hazelnuts at home so I used half walnuts half hazelnuts. The results were a delicious and moist coffee cake. I'll have to learn this recipe by heart.
Petite, crunchy, black raspberry filled thumbprints, dipped in granulated sugar, and studded with miniature chocolate chips. These cookies freeze well.
I invented this to use up a surplus of hazelnuts some years ago, long before I even suspected I'd end up living next door to a hazelnut grove!
Individual molten chocolate cakes are easy to make--and will impress any dinner guest!

Lovely little cookies made with walnuts and rolled in confectioners' sugar.
A dainty cookie with nuts, that is rolled in confectioners' sugar. These cookies are similar to the Russian Tea Cakes and they don't last long!
