1. Beat egg whites in a large bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beat until mixture is thick and glossy. Fold in sifted cornflour and ground hazelnuts.
2. Divide mixture between two 22 cm / 8 3/4 in paper-lined, greased and floured cake pans, spreading mixture evenly over base. Bake in moderately low oven for 45 minutes. Cool cakes for 10 minutes before removing paper and turning onto a wire rack to cool.
