Chocolate cake with noisette frosting

We so have been enjoying a long weekend of family time. But everything nice has to come to an end so we went out with a bang and had a wonderful rich dinner last night ending it on the sweet side with a chocolate cake and noisette frosting. Noisette is hazelnuts and chocolate which in my opinion, is a marriage made in heaven. It was so good that it even called my name this morning, making me eat a small piece. Iiiieeekkk!!!
Chocolate cake
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup  vegetable cream
75g vegetable margarine, melted
1 cup vegetable milk

Mix all dry ingredients and mix all wet once together. Blend them slowly together while stirring or even better use a electrical whipper or kitchen aid. Blend really well and pour into a well oiled cake pan with removable sides. Bake middle of oven for 40-45 minutes. When a tooth pick inserted into the cake come out clean an

Noisette frosting

2 tbs cocoa powder
1/4 cup vanilla flavored vegetable milk
2 cup confection sugar (maybe more)
Almond flakes

nd blend until there are no lumps left. Shift sugar into mix and blend well. If it seems lose add more sugar. Set aside to let it thicken for 10 minutes. Spread the frosting all over the cake and sprinkle almond flakes in a nice thin layer all over the cake.
