  • Summary

    This seductive cake has something for everyone: excitement (a crackly top), unexpected twists (chocolate chunks and hazelnuts hidden inside), and a feel-good ending (the moist chocolate cake). the batter is baked about halfway, then it's spread with a thick layer of chocolate- and nut-studded meringue and returned to the oven for a final crisping.

    Ingredients

    • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for pan
    • All-purpose flour, for pan
    • 1 cup hazelnuts (about 4 ounces)
    • 3/4 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
    • 6 large whole eggs, separated
    • 4 large egg whites
    • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled, plus 4 ounces roughly chopped (1 cup)
    • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 tablespoon rum (optional)
    • 1 pinch of salt
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    • 1 cup superfine sugar
