Enjoy A Taste Of Italy With A 3-Ingredient Walnut Cake
Walnut cake, or torta di noci, is a nationally treasured dish that originated in Italy's southern region of Calabria. It consists of three ingredients: walnuts, eggs, and sugar.
Torta di noci is an elegant cake that's sweet and dense. Ground walnuts act as both the flour and the fat, and separated and beaten egg yolks and whites bind and leaven the cake.
Toasted walnuts offer a balance of nutty, bitter, and toasted notes to round out the sweet richness of the egg yolks and sugar. Plus, it's a gluten-free dessert.
