How to Prepare Coffee Glazed Chocolate Hazelnut Cake [Vegan]

To Make the Coffee Cream:
  1. Put all the coffee cream ingredients in a food processor and mix them well.
  2. Let it wait in the refrigerator for about 4 hours or overnight.

To Make the Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl, mix, and set aside.
  3. Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
