Instructions
  1. HOW TO:
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, eggyolks, chopped hazelnuts and baking together, beat until well blended. Gently fold in egg whites until just combined. Thoroughly grease a 26 gauge springform pan. Pour batter and bake for about 1 hour. Remove and cool.
  3. Drain cherry pie filling in a colander to remove most of the thickened juices. Mix cornflour and sugar with some cherry juice. Add cherries and remaining juice to a pan and boil until reduced to a pulp. Add kirsch and thicken with cornflour mixture. Stir well then allow to cool slightly. Should be like jam.
  4. Take the cool sponge and soak the top layers with Kirsch, then spread over with warm jam mixture. Allow to cool and set.
  5. Whip cream and sugar until stiff. Spread cream on top of jam; keep some cream for piping dollops. Spread eggnog on top of cream, pipe a dollop for each portion around the edge and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
  6. GOODLUCK AND BON APPETIT!!!
