This is the original recipe, minus 1 oz of coconut. Awesome egg foam cake, though I wonder if 30 minutes was a good baking time. My layers shrunk quite a bit, but that was probably from over-mixing. But they remained very moist, I should not have imbibed them with simple syrup, it would have been moist enough without it. The filling took about twice as long as suggested, but turned out beautifully. My only problems were: the layers were SO fragile, hard to turn out and plate without crumbling. Also, it was quite difficult to get a clean cut due to the crumbliness. Other than that, delicious, and I don't even like nuts or coconut. I baked mine in three 9in pans. I frosted and decorated it with Creamy Chocolate Frosting and drizzled Satiny Chocolate Glaze around the edge.
