Question. What is dacquoise?
Answer. Dacquoise is a light airy batter that is used as a cake layer in many modern desserts. It is derived from almond meringue (pâte à succes) and hazelnut meringue (pâte à progres) It is made with egg whites and equal parts (1:1 ratio) of nut powder and icing sugar called tant pour tant. In our case some of the nut mixture is replaced with coconut. The name comes from a town in southwestern France.
