  1. Pre-heat oven to 170°C. Line a 19cm tin with baking paper.
  2. Place chocolate chunks in a glass bowl and pour over hot coffee. Stand for 2 minutes then whisk until smooth. Add vanilla, milk, eggs and oil, then whisk until well combined.
  3. In a bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients. Add chocolate mixture and beat on low for 1 minute, then increase speed and beat a further 2 minutes until smooth and glossy. Pour into tin. Bake for 45 to 50 mins. Leave to cool completely, then slice into 3 layers.
  4. For the frosting, combine chocolate, butter and cream and heat gently in the microwave or over a double boiler, stirring until melted and smooth. Cool for 20 to 30 minutes, then beat in sourcream until thick and fluffy. Chill.
  5. For the toffee hazelnuts, heat honey in a frying pan until bubbling and golden. Add hazelnuts and cook 2 to 3 minutes until coated and syrupy. Pour onto a lined tray and leave to set. When hardened, chop roughly and store in an air-tight container. Place the base of the cake on a plate. Sandwich cake layers with frosting and decorate with remaining piped frosting and toffee nuts.
