In another bowl whisk the yolks with 125g golden castor sugar until pale and fluffy.
Sift in three tablespoons of cocoa and a teaspoon of baking powder.
Fold in the egg whites and 225g of ground almonds. Add a generous teaspoon of vanilla essence.
Put in a loose-bottomed tin and bake for about 30 minutes at gas mark 6.
Keep in the tin until cold.
The packaging was charming.
Talk about building excitement!
And what's better than several layers?!
I've had a really lovely Easter
and I hope that you did too.
