I made this for my diabetic sister in law because the low carb content.It turned out wonderful. I used pecans instead of hazelnuts. I would not add the sugar next time as it was very sweet and decadent. This tasted like an amazing dense brownie cake. No custard taste to my suprise. Everyone LOVED it! Easy to make, impressive dessert!
