The first step, mix egg whites with the salt. In another bowl, mix the egg yolks with almond, add flour, and batter but do this gently. Pour the batter in the already prepared pan. Bake about 40 minutes and let it cool after this about 10 – 15 minutes.

We are to the second step. The second step, meanwhile when your cake is baking, melt the chocolate and coconut in a bowl and prepare the frosting.

Repeat with the second layer of cake. In the end. add the third layer of cake and spread with the last 1/3 cup (80g) of coconut milk.
