Buttery puff pastry is the base for this “layer cake” that features an ethereal macaroon filling, made by beating almond flour with powdered sugar and a little coffee powder, for subtle flavor, and then folding in a meringue (beaten egg whites and sugar) until combined but still light and airy, and then folding in chocolate chips. There’s more: a layer of Nutella is spread over the pastry, for more chocolatey, nutty goodness.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet pastry dough (puff)
  • 150 grams almond flour
  • 200 grams powdered sugar
  • 50 grams granulated sugar
  • 130 grams egg whites
  • salt
  • 1 teaspoon coffee (ground)
  • chocolate chips
  • Nutella

Directions

  1. Line a round cake pan with puff pastry dough and refrigerate it.
  2. Preheat the oven to 170C.
  3. Combine the almond flour with the powdered sugar and the coffee.
  4. Beat the egg whites to stiff peaks with a pinch of salt and gradually add the sugar.
  5. Add the beaten egg whites to the almond flour mixture, folding carefully.
  6. Add one large egg and approximately 100 milliliters of milk, folding in carefully with a spatula.
  7. Add the chocolate chips to the batter.
  8. Spread some Nutella on the puff pastry dough and add the batter on top.
  9. Bake for approximately 40 minutes.
  10. Remove the cake from the oven and cool.

Whenever I make a cake I always have the highest expectations; this cake met every single one of them. It was a very sweet cake that maintained an even amount of flavorful ness throughout it which I like. It was also very sponge-like giving it a nice texture when you eat it. It was one of the simplest recipes I have made in a long time and did not cause me to be stuck in the kitchen all day long like many other recipes. I will be making this 5 star recipe again next week for our friends.
