Cooking Time :
20 minutes

Preparation Method :

  • Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Cream the butter, setting the beater at the highest speed.
  • Add the sugar, vanilla sugar, and the egg yolks at 30 second intervals, beating well after each addition.
  • Sift the flour with the cornstarch, combine with the ground almonds and gradually beat this into the butter with the beaters at medium speed.
  • Add the cardamom, cinnamon, rosewater, and rum, and then carefully fold in the egg whites.
  • Line half of baking pan with nonstick baking paper. Use a dough scraper to spread a wafer-thin layer of the dough on the paper and bake it in a preheated 425°F/21 5°C oven for around 5 minutes.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven, spread another layer of the dough over the first and bake in the same way as the first. Repeat this for 6-8 layers in total.
  • Place the layers on top of one another and cut the cake into squares or triangles. Allow to cool.
  • Chop up the chocolate couverture, place in a bain-marie or basin over water on a low heat and stir until smooth.
  • Pick up the squares or triangles with a fork and dip them in the frosting, holding them up until they stop dripping.
  • Place them on a wire rack and use the fork to draw decorative wavy lines in the frosting. Store in an airtight container.
