DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with 1/2 cup sugar until the mixture holds stiff peaks.
  • Without washing the beaters, beat the eggs yolk in a small bowl with the rest of the sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the yolks to the whites but do not stir.
  • Add the walnuts and gently fold the ingredients together.
  • Do the same with the coconut, one cup at a time.
  • Pour the cake batter into a greased 9-inch spring form pan, and bake for 45 minutes until lightly brown on top.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Mix together the orange juice and orange liqueur. Pour over the cake while it is still in the pan.
  • When the cake has cooled, place it in the refrigerator until it is time to serve.
  • Just before serving (add whipped cream here, if desired) garnish with bittersweet chocolate shavings.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
