If you don’t like Nutella (almost impossible) you can replace it with another hazelnut spread or dark chocolate cream. Otherwise, if you want to obtain a lighter cake, you can avoid chocolate or Nutella and pour only the coconut. Finally, to obtain a softer version, you can also add yoghurt together with butter and sugar.
