  • Sift in the cocoa, then fold in carefully and evenly with a metal spoon Whisk the egg whites in a clean, greasefree bowl until they form soft peaks.
  • Fold about 1 tablespoon of the whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it, then fold in the rest evenly Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan, taking it right into the corners.
  • Smooth the surface with a metal spatula, then bake for 20-25 minutes or until firm and springy to the touch Turn the cooked cake out onto the sugar dusted wax paper and carefully peel off the lining paper.
  • Cover with a damp towel and let cool completely To make the filling: Whisk the cream with the whiskey or brandy in a bowl until the mixture just holds its shape, grate the coconut cream and stir in with the sugar Uncover the cake and spread about 3/4 of the cream mixture to the edges.
