Preheat your oven to 170 C fan-forced (340 F). Line your muffin pan with paper cups (12).

In a small saucepan heat the chocolate, hazelnut syrup and water. Stir until the chocolate melts and mixture is nice and smooth. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl beat the butter with sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one by one and beat just until combined. Add the chocolate mixture to the butter-egg mixture and stir with a rubber spatula.
Add the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and hazelnut meal and mix gently with a rubber spatula just until combined.
Pour the mixture in your muffin pan and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
Let the cakes cool before serving.
To prepare the chocolate frosting use this recipe, but substitute the coconut liquor with hazelnut syrup.
