NUSS TORTE German Nut Cake

Nuss Torte (Nusstorte) is a delicious German Nut Cake that's light and delicate, similar to an Angel Food Cake. You'll only need a handful of ingredients, four to be exact, and an angel food cake pan to prepare this heavenly cake.


Eggs Sugar Walnuts Bread Crumbs

Separate egg whites into a large mixing bowl. Beat until stiff.

Remove egg whites from the mixing bowl and place into another bowl

Add egg yolks and sugar to the empty mixing bowl and beat together until thick and pale lemon in color.

Add egg yolks, bread crumbs, and ground walnuts to the egg whites and gently mix.

Fold the ingredients carefully so as not to deflate the eggs.

Pour the cake batter into an ungreased angel food cake pan. Bake for 50 minutes.

Cool the cake upside down for at least an hour until completely cool.

Flip the pan upright and slide a thin knife along the pan edges, around the inner tube, and the bottom.

Carefully invert the cake onto a plate. If some of the cake stuck to the bottom of the pan, flip the cake onto another plate to reveal the prettier side.

Chill the nut cake before serving.
