For the crumble

  • In a bowl add the flour, the brown sugar, the cocoa powder, the cinnamon, the butter, and mix with a spoon.
  • Then, mix with your hands until the mixture becomes a thick dough.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and put it in the freezer.

For the syrup

  • Drain the cherries into a bowl and set them aside.
  • Add the brandy into the bowl with the syrup, stir, and set aside.

For the cake

  • Preheat the oven at 160o C (320 F) set to fan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the brown sugar, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 4-5 minutes, until the mixture is fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one by one. Wait for each one to be incorporated before adding the next. Lastly, add the vanilla.
  • In a bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder and add them to the mixer.
  • Add the grated hazelnuts, the salt, and keep beating for 1-2 minutes until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Add the yogurt, the orange zest, and beat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add half of the cherries into the mixture and mix with a spatula.
  • Transfer the mixture to a buttered 25 cm springform pan and spread half of the remaining cherries over its surface. Lightly press them with your hands in order to cover them with the mixture. In that way, they will remain at the top of the mixture and they will not all go to the bottom of the pan.
  • Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and, with a box grater, spread the crumble over the whole surface of the cake. Bake for 30 more minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and, while it is still hot, drizzle with the cold syrup. Allow 1 hour for it to cool and absorb the syrup.
  • Serve with whipped cream, the remaining cherries, and the grated chocolate.
