    Chocolate batter
    In a mixing bowl, combine and sift all the powders (flours, baking powders and salt and set aside).
    Melt the chocolate and set aside.
    In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, whip whole eggs with sugar and vanilla until double in size.
    Add the very soft butter and whip until completely incorporated.
    Then, add the yogurt and mix to combine with a hand whisk.
    Then, add all the sifted powders and whisk to combine.
    Add the melted chocolat and mix to combine.
    Pour the prepared chocolate batter in a pastry bag and you are ready to pipe the cake inside the mould.
    To pipe and to bake
    Inside the mould, pipe a vanilla batter layer, then a chocolate batter layer and continue until both mixtures are used up.
    Smooth the surface with a small spatula and tap the bottom on your work surface to ensure that there aren’t any air bubbles.
    Take a small spatula or a knife and swirl it around the mixture in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect.
    If necessary, smooth the surface once again, and bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean and dry.
    Let the cake cool inside the mould for a few minutes, before removing and placing on a wire rack.
    Let the cake completely cool, room temperature for at least a couple of hours.
    Rocher glaze
    Melt the 2 chocolates.
    Add the oil and mix gently to combine until the oil is completely incorporated.
    Then add the fine chopped hazelnuts and mix to combine.
    Let the glaze until 33°C before using.
    To assemble
    Place the cooled cake on a wire rack and glaze with rocher glaze, trying to cover it completely.
    With a small spatula, regain the poured excess rocher glaze on the bottom and fill any unglazed parts.
    Let the glaze completely cool at room temperature for at least 2/3 hours.
    To serve
    Garnish with tempere dark chocolate and gold leaf.
    Store the cake room temperature.
    Enjoy!
