Preparation Pastry Base:

The base of the cake can be baked well 1 day before use, the topping then fresh.

Preheat the oven to 175°C convection oven - 26 springform pan.

Separate the eggs and beat the whites with a pinch of salt until firm.

In a second bowl, mix the egg yolks with the sugar, hazelnuts, Maca Powder (Bio) and almonds for at least 3 minutes with a hand mixer.

Stir in the chocolate pieces and hot water and finally carefully fold in the beaten egg whites.

Let the baked cake base cool well on a rack, then put the edge back around the cake (otherwise the jam will run down the sides), spread the cranberry jam evenly on top and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Whip the cream with the cream stiffener according to instructions and spread evenly over the cake, decorate with the remaining chocolate pieces and berries.
