Ingredients
  1. 10 large eggs, separated
  2. 2 cups sugar
  3. ⅓ cup water
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. ½ teaspoon almond extract
  6. ¼ teaspoon salt
  7. 2 cups cake flour, sifted
  8. Chicory Mousse, recipe follows
  9. Chicory Syrup, recipe follows
  10. Chicory-Chocolate Ganache, recipe follows
  11. Garnish: chocolate curls
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300°. Spray 3 (8-inch) baking pans with nonstick baking spray with flour. Line each with parchment rounds and spray again; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks at high speed with an electric mixer, adding sugar slowly, until mixture is light and fluffy, about 8 minutes. Add ⅓ cup water, extracts, and salt; beat to combine.
  3. In a separate large bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer at high speed until mixture is stiff but still glossy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Gently fold egg whites into egg yolks. Sift flour over egg mixture; fold in a little at a time until all is combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
  4. Bake until cakes are golden and a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes. Remove cakes from oven. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks. Using a serrated knife, cut each cake into 3 layers.
  5. On a large plate, place 1 cake layer. Brush with Chicory Syrup, and cover with Chicory Mousse. Repeat with remaining layers. Spread Chicory-Chocolate Ganache on sides and top of cake. Garnish with chocolate curls, if desired.
  6. Store, covered, in refrigerator up to 5 days.
