ISO Flourless Cake with Chocolate from Israel

A coworker brought in a cake that supposedly is made without flour. I was almost like a malted milk ball with chocolate and some kind of cream. He wasn't sure what it was called, but that he got it in an Israeli/Russian bakery near his house. It was DELICIOUS and I want to find a recipe for it. If anyone has a recipe that they will share or even the name of it so I can search for the recipe, I'd be forever grateful.

My friend makes a wonderful flourless chocolate cake each year for their Passover Seder dinner. This one sounds a lot like hers:

A friend made a version of the Passover Flourless Chocolate Cake from the King Arthur site.

1 cup choc chips
1/2 cup marg, butter or oil
3/4 cup sugar
pinch salt
1 to 2 teaspoons instant coffee
3 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa

Melt the choc with the fat. Mix in your other ingredients, preheat your oven to 350 and grease a small cake pan or pie tin. Bake for about half an hour.

A super rich dessert you really want to slice it thin but just a delicious melt in your mouth treat, adding a little not to sweet whipped cream to go with it is also good and a good cup of coffee decaf or not. Some recipes add a bit of liquor like Grand Marnier, Kalua or almond liquor etc.

thanks, but none of these sound right. This cake was a light brown color (almost white) and crunchy like a malted milk ball and had a layer of cream in between and pieces of chocolate on top.

Ok, that sounds like a Dacquoise with is made with layers of dried merinque
Here is one version Hazelnut and Almond Dacquoise by Nick Malgieri

If you google it you can get many variations

This sounds like it. I think I'm going to try it this week. If anyone else has anything, please feel free to share...
