      My famuly is Chilean and his recpe does not usually call for any kind of nuts; The name means cakes of a thousand layers. this is my favrite cake and evry year my mother would make it for my birthday (we love nuts so I know she did not omit them for any reason) also you are supposed to put preassure on every layer as you go wih a brick wrapped in foil and especially after you are done to copact the cake. This is a delicious cake and orth the work

      Fantastic! I love Mil Hojas, we also call it Rogel in Argentina. I covered mine with meringue (whipped egg whites with sugar and a touch of lemon juice). Thank you Polar bear.
