I want to offer my version of the cake "Kyiv". That met in cookbooks or on websites, I was not satisfied, because there is only the cake with the meringue, and that is not in the same form as in the factory cake. And so by trial and error and achieved the desired result. Offer and all other to evaluate the result of my long experiments.

Prepare the sponge cake. Proteins separated from the yolks, beat with salt in a solid foam and gradually add sugar, still whisking.
In whipped with sugar protein one input of jelke, whisk mass.
Sift in bowl the flour, starch and baking powder. Gradually pour in the egg mixture and knead.
Form for baking grease oil, sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Into prepared pan spread the dough. In a preheated oven to t=180 C on the middle shelf mode "top/bottom fire". Bake for 10-15 minutes (check to the dry splinter).
Prepare syrup. In a bowl pour water, add sugar and cook on medium heat until boiling. In the cooled syrup pour brandy and stir thoroughly.
Prepare the meringue. Pre-pour the peanuts on a baking sheet and dry in the oven at t=100-125 With 15 minutes (if the husk is separated, can be removed).
Dried peanuts to clean from the husk.
In a bowl whisk the whites with the salt. Initially, on low speed, when they begin to appear plentifully air bubbles, increase the speed and whisk until thick mass. At this stage, gradually begin to pour the sugar.
Beat egg whites with sugar until "stable peaks".
Parts add the peanuts and mix up with a spatula to a uniform distribution.
Shape diameter as the sponge cake, covered with baking paper, spread the whites. In a preheated oven until t=200 C, hold for 3-5 minutes and diminish the heat to 175-150, bake until cooked (test with a splinter). I once made the mistake of beginning to dry the meringue at 100 C as it is recommended to do in almost all recipes, and it was not silent, the crust was not crunchy.
