Walnut Torte (LF) (GF) Recipe

Just biscuit crumbs, sugar, walnuts and eggs. Great as a simple dessert or along side a good old fashioned cup of tea. Serve it "rustic" with a dollop of cream, a few berries and a sprinkling of chopped nuts. Good for satisfying the sweet tooth. Omit the cream on top and it is lactose free. Can also be made gluten free by using gluten free biscuits.

Walnut Torte ... Spectacular!!!
I usually use plain biscuits and use my bullet blender to create crumbs, making sure the crumbs are as fine as possible. The same with the walnuts, best to get them as fine as possible. If you're really adventurous you could try other flavours like ginger or chocolate. Be good to hear how that goes if you try.

125g walnuts
1/2 cup biscuit crumbs
1 cup sugar
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 160 degrees celcius and grease or line a 20cm cake tin or rectangular tin.
Using a blender or food processor, blend the walnuts and half the sugar until finely crumbed. Add the remaining sugar.
Whisk eggs together until pale and thick.
Carefully fold the biscuit crumbs, walnuts and sugar into the eggs mixture until just combined.
Pour mixture into prepared tin.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until the torte is springs back when lightly touched.
Remove from oven and rest for 10 minutes before removing from tin.
Cut and serve with a dollop of cream, fruit and chopped nuts.
