    Great recipe. The cake ended up moist but not dense, and tasted very chocolatey. Thanks

    It depends how sweet you want your cake. In my option 3-4 tablespoons are enough.

    I added 1/4 cup of Amaretto to this. I also added some diced pitted dates to the batter for sweetness instead of sugar. Great dense, moist cake!

    Would it work if I substituted the oats for hazelnut flour?
