Chocolate Hazelnut Tea Cake (makes one loaf)

1/2 cup butter
3 oz bittersweet (or semi-sweet) chocolate
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup ground roasted hazelnuts

Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour a standard sized loaf pan.

Melt butter in large saucepan (not non-stick, as you will be mixing
everything in this pan) over *low* heat. When butter is almost
completely melted, add chocolate and melt it, watching it carefully
to be sure it doesn't scorch. Remove from heat. and beat in sugar.
When it is smooth, add flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Blend
thoroughly. Add sour cream and blend well. By now the dough should
be fairly cool, but if it is not, set aside or refrigerate for a
little while to cool.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Mix in vanilla
extract. Gently fold in hazelnuts. Pour into loaf pan and bake
45-50 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Allow to cool 10
minutes in pan before turning out onto a cooling rack. If desired,
glaze with a mixture of lots of powdered sugar blended with milk
and vanilla or with melted chocolate, but I find it's rich enough
with no added fancy stuff. I suspect it would work with other kinds
of ground nuts or with no nuts at all, but have never tried it any
other way.
