I was in Israel for passover and for dessert there was chocolate cake, chocolate cake, more chocolate cake and this - to my surprise even though the chocolate cake was absolutely lovely, I prefered My aunt Yehudit's meringue layer cake, I had never tasted anything like it before! This is another Hebrew to English translation done by my mother. prep time is estimated - sorry if it's out. One warning though, this cake is VERY VERY rich. Note: I bake 1/2 the meringue mixture at the time, the oven really needs lowering though and it takes a lot less time.
