Torta Di Noci (walnut cake)
1 and one-third cups shelled walnuts
1 and one-third cups confectioners' sugar
5 and a half ounces grated bitter chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
4 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) minced candied citron
Grind the walnuts to a powder with the confectioners' sugar, then transfer them to a bowl and mix in the chocolate, the vanilla sugar, and the yolks. Whip and fold in the whites, and finally add the candied citron.
Choose a pan large enough so the cake won't be more than an inch thick; butter it, and dust it with bread crumbs. Bake the cake in a preheated 350 degree oven until it sets and begins to pull away from the sides of the pan.
My guests tell me this cake is exquisite.
