"This beautiful dessert is a very big hit at parties," relates Phyllis Amboss of Pacific Palisades, California. "The tender meringues have a wonderful hazelnut flavor with layers of chocolate, whipped cream and berries.
"I got the recipe when we were in Israel for a few months in 1979. I had no cookbooks with me, and my hairdresser gave me an old Australian cookbook with this recipe in it. I made a few changes and this is the result."
"This cake is so good, I can serve it as an everyday dessert or for special occasions," writes Dorothy Monroe, Pocatello, Idaho. Chocolate cake layers are jazzed up with whipped cream and a quick chocolate frosting.
