* For the cocoa top:

* 4 eggs
* 140 g sugar
* 100 g melted butter
* 150 g flour
* 1 baking powder
* 50 g cocoa

Beat the eggs very well with a pinch of salt and sugar, until they double in volume. Add a tablespoon of melted butter, beat for another 1-2 minutes, until they become like a cream. Decreasing the speed of the mixer, add flour mixed with cocoa and baking powder.

The obtained dough is poured into a tray (24 cm in diameter) lined with baking paper and put in the oven over medium heat for half an hour. Leave to cool, then cut into 2 thick countertops.

* For the meringue top:

* 5 egg whites
* 100 g ground walnuts
* 140 g sugar
* 1 tablespoon starch

The ground walnut is mixed with half the amount of sugar and starch.

Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until the foam hardens, then gradually add the sugar. Beat until you get a thick and shiny foam. Incorporate in them the mixture of walnuts, sugar and starch.

Divide into 2 parts and bake 2 worktops in a tray lined with baking paper, in the oven heated to 160 degrees for 30 minutes. Extinguish the fire and leave the countertops in the oven for 1-2 hours.

* Cream:

* 450 ml liquid cream
* 250 dark chocolate
* 1 tablespoon cocoa
* 1 tablespoon almond liqueur

Put the cocoa in a bowl, which is "dissolved" little by little with liquid cream. Add the broken chocolate pieces and put on low heat. Keep on the heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate melts. Add the liqueur and mix. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for a few hours. It would be preferable to prepare the day before or in the evening in the morning. Before assembling the cake, take the cream out of the fridge and beat with the mixer for 1-2 minutes.

* Syrup:

* 50 ml of almond liqueur
* 50 ml water
* 1 tablespoon sugar

* Decor:

* 50 g caramelized sugar + 50 g walnuts
* 200 ml fresh
* 100 g dark chocolate

Put a plate of meringue on a plate, grease with 1/3 of the cream. Place a cocoa top on top, syrup with half the syrup and grease with 1/3 of the cream. Place the second layer of almonds on top, grease with the rest of the cream. Place the second cocoa tray on top and syrup with the rest of the syrup.
