Ferrero Rocher Crumb Cake Recipe

Ferrero Rocher Crumb Cake

I’ve been wanting to make a recipe for Ferrero Rocher crumb cake for a while and luckily I came up with a pretty simple, well maybe not that simple, but quite an original version of chocolate hazelnut crumb cake. Several things can be added to this recipe, such as placing the actual chocolates inside the cake, which I didn’t really like ,as the wafer softened after baking, also the cake can be cut in the center and frosted with your favorite chocolate buttercream or any other frosting.
I’d suggest to try this version and if desired add those extras to the recipe.
