Hazelnut-Chocolate-Cherry Cake #Dairyfree #Glutenfree

This year for her birthday, Alena requested a chocolate cake with something else.  Plain chocolate cake seemed to boring - all of us like nuts, and cherries so this is perfect.  Oh, and did you that Oregon is the biggest producer of hazelnuts in the US?  Yup,  so maybe we should name this cake the Oregon-Chocolate-Cherry Cake...;)
