Total Time 1 hr

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Flour

Instructions
 

  • Beat the egg whites with sugar until it becomes a stiff and glossy foam.
  • Put the butter or margarine with dark chocolate into the microwave for 1 minute. If not all the chocolate has melted - stir the mixture until complete melting of the chocolate. You cannot put the chocolate in the microwave for too long because otherwise it will burn.
  • After melting, add the cognac and coffee.
  • Combine the chocolate mixture with egg whites and yolks wrapping delicate movements (the so-called "folding")
  • Divide the mixture into two.
  • Store one half in the refrigerator.
  • For the second half add the nuts and flour.
  • Mix very well and pour into a round spring form pan lined with baking paper.
  • Bake the chocolate mixture and the nuts at 350 Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes.
  • When the cake is baked take it out of the oven and cool to room temperature.
  • After the cake has cooled use the second half of the mix we kept in the refrigerator to smoothly cover the first now baked cake.
  • Return to the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. It is also possible to freeze.
  • You now have a chocolate cake with two layers - enjoy!
  • If you want to ensure a beautiful cutting of the cake it is recommended to use a long, sharp knife, dipped in boiling water.
  • If you want you can add another layer of whipped cream or whipped cream decoration but the cake itself is already very “rich”.
