Chocolate and Vanilla Layer Cake

This cake will take some effort and time. It is not a cake to make if you are in a hurry or have lots of other 
things to do but it is worth the time. It is similar in preparation to an Indonesian Layer Cake.


Ingredients
8 Eggs
1 2/3 cups icing mixture
1 Tsp Vanilla
100mls Macadamia oil
1/3 cup Almond Meal
250 grams Chocolate




1. Line and grease a 17cm square cake tin.
2. Separate the eggs, whisking the whites until they form stiff peaks.
3. Slowly beat the sugar into the egg whites until the mixture is meringue like.
4. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and vanilla together.
5. Add the Macadamia Oil and Almond meal to the yolk mixture and beat well.
6. Pour egg yolk mixture into the egg white mixture and fold gently.
7. Halve the mixture.
8. Melt the chocolate (can use either the microwave method or stove top method)
9. Gently fold chocolate into one of the mixtures.
10. Turn on grill (180 C or 350F).
11. Add approximately 1/3 - 1/2 cup of the chocolate mixture into the cake tin and rotate so mixture evenly 
coats the bottom. Put under the grill for approximately 1 minute or until the mixture lightly browns.
12. Repeat step 11 but use the vanilla mixture.
13. Continue to do steps 11 and 12 until you have used up both mixtures.
14. Turn cake out on a wire rack and allow to cool completely before cutting.
15. Sprinkle the top with icing sugar, trim edges and cut cake into desired number of pieces.
