Ingredients

8 eggs
2 egg yolks
150 grams sugar
200 grams wheat flour
100 grams rice flour
25 grams butter (melted)
2 tablespoons water (at room temperature)
250 grams sugar
200 milliliters water
1 cup liquor (such as a sweet wine)
7 egg yolks
150 grams sugar
75 milliliters water
500 grams ground almonds
500 grams powdered sugar
2 egg whites

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius.
2Beat the eggs, yolks, and sugar together until white.
3Sift together the wheat and rice flours and mix into the egg mixture. Add the butter, mixing well.
4Line a large baking pan with parchment paper, brush with oil, and fill with the batter.
5Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and turn out onto a rack to cool. Cut into three strips.
6Place the sugar and water into a saucepan to make the syrup. Bring to a boil and cook for 7 minutes. Add the liquor and set aside, keeping warm.
7For the yolk topping, boil the water and sugar together until it forms a fine thread when dipped in cold water. Stir in the yolks, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside.
8For the marzipan, mix the almonds and sugar together and add the egg whites little by little.
9Knead on a flat surface sprinkled with powdered sugar until a smooth dough is formed. Cover in plastic wrap and set aside.
10Place 1 of the cake layers onto a dish and brush several times with the hot syrup until soaked through. Drizzle with a third of the yolk topping. Repeat with the other 2 cake layers.
11Roll the marzipan out until 3 mm thick. Place over the cake and press and smooth the marzipan into place to cover it completely on all sides. Trim any extra with a knife.
12Sprinkle the entire cake with powdered sugar.
