From "Little Meals" by Rozanne Gold (Villard Books, 1993).

Preheat oven to 350'F. Beat 6 of the egg whites until stiff.
Set aside.

In medium bowl, combine cocoa with sugar, oil, remaining 2 
egg whites, coffee, vanilla extract and orange rind. Mix 
ground almonds with Matzo flour and then add to cocoa 
mixture. Stir well. Add 1/3 of the beaten egg whites. Mix 
with rubber spatula. Then fold in the remainder of the 
beaten egg whites. Pour into an oiled and floured (with cake 
meal) 8 1/2" springform pan.

Bake for 25 minutes at 350'F. (Be careful not to overbake.) 
Remove from oven and allow cake to sit for 10 minutes before 
removing from springform pan. Cool completely. Put doily (or 
stencil of your choice) on top of cake. Sprinkle with 
confectioners' sugar, then remove doily carefully, leaving 
lace design. Serve with fresh berries on the side.
