Took Lyonesskim's suggestion and added 1 whole egg to the VERY stiff batter before folding in the egg whites. I used hazelnuts and drizzled with Amaretto -- delicious! I think Frangelico would heighten the hazelnut experience, while Amaretto would be better paired with an almond variation. I'll make this again and again--it is a real winner! The impressive factor is greater than the level of difficulty; my only problem was cutting into 3 layers--I managed, but the middle layer was a thing of shreds and patches. This is a recurring problem for me--any suggestions out there? Finally, I used the Stabilized Whipped Cream sent by Ethelmertz, flavored with Amaretto, and got oohs and aahs from around the table, and isn't that what baking is really all about?
