● Melt the chocolate and butter separately. Once they reach their melting point, mix them. Also, take a separate bowl, and mix sugar and eggs with a wooden spatula. 

● Once the chocolate mixture cools down, mix it with the egg-sugar mixture. 

● Now fold in the flour with a wooden spoon till the mixture is blended well. 

● Pour the mixture into the desired mold and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celsius for 12 minutes. 

● After baking the cake, allow it to cool on a wire rack and once the temperature lowers, store it in the refrigerator to further bring down the temperature. 

● To prepare the hazelnut cream, heat fresh cream on a double boiler to about 50 degrees and then remove it from the heat. Add in the hazelnut paste and give it a nice whisk. 

● Allow the mixture to cool down and fold in whipped cream. 

● Now pour the mixture into a piping bag and pipe it over the cake. 

● Apply some pistachio crumbs at the bottom of the cake. 

● Serve along with some seasonal cut fruits.
