  • Summary

    Rich with chocolate and studded with bits of toasted almonds with a faint coconut flavor, this heavenly dessert is a special finish to a holiday meal. Because the leavening comes from aeration, it is essential that the ingredients be at room temperature before assembling the batter.

    Ingredients

    • Vegetable oil for greasing pan
    • 1 cup blanched almonds (5 ounces)
    • 8 ounces fine quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped
    • 5 large eggs, separated, at room temperature for 30 minutes
    • 2/3 cup well-stirred coconut milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/3 cup matzoh cake meal
    • 2 tablespoons potato starch
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon potato starch
    • Sliced strawberries (about 1 quart; 3 cups)
    • About 1/4 cup sliced almonds preferably with skin, lightly toasted for garnish (optional)
    • a 9-to 9 1/2-inch (24 centimeter) spring-form pan; a coffee/spice grinder
