In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks with 50 g of sugar, honey, vanilla, and water using a hand mixer until you get an airy batter. It should take about 4 minutes at medium-high speed (1).
In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with the 80 g of sugar and a pinch of salt for 6 minutes or until they become fluffy and firm (2).
Slowly incorporate the egg yolk batter into the egg whites using a whisk (1).
Add sifted flour and cocoa powder and gently mix with a spatula (2).
Grease and flour a 30 cm x 30 cm (12 inches x 12 inches) square baking tray and pour the batter (1).
Cook in the middle shelf of the oven for 7 minutes (2).
Remove and transfer to a wire rack to cool down.
To prepare the coconut cream use our easy step-by-step recipe.
Cut the cake square in half, spoon the cream over one half and level with a spatula (1).
Cover with the other half and slice into bars or squared sandwiches (2).
Melt the dark chocolate in a cup over a pot of boiling water (1).
Dip in the cake bar and allow cooling down on a sheet of baking paper (2).
