Flourless Walnut Cake

Recommended Posts

I couldn't believe how good this turned out. The texture was amazing considering it was made out of ground walnuts and eggs. It tasted like a walnut brownie.

I made it for Thanksgiving and my daughter was a little suspicious of it, but I let her sprinkle some confectioners sugar on it and she liked it. There's just a little sliver left.

I got the recipe out of the book "Going against the Grain".

Are there any other recipes that use nut meal that I'm missing?

I got my Coconut Book and the other book with the almond flour recipes today. Haven't tried any yet, but both books look great. I'm really excited! :)

Yellow Rose


27 years of misdiognoses

seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet

rheumatoid arthritis May 1980

wrist joint replacement Jan 1984

fibromyalgia May 1980

insomnia since the 80's

diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds

Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea

Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:

depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.

Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

In answer to my prayer, "Lord Please Heal My Broken Body". May 2007 Celiac antibody test positive

Matthew 7: 8 Ask and ye shall receive, Seek and ye shall find, Knock and it shall be opened unto you.

I hope it's okay to do this.

It's from the book by Melissa Diane Smith and the book is called Going against the Grain.

Chocolate Walnut Cake

2 1/2 cups ground walnuts

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

5 large eggs

1 cup maple sugar (I used organic sugar, as I wasn't sure what maple sugar was)

Confectioners sugar (optional)

I ground the walnuts with some of the sugar so it didn't turn into walnut butter.

Her instructions:

Preheat oven to 350. Oil an 8 inch nonstick cake pan and line bottom with parchment paper (I used wax paper and I used a 9 inch pan) Mix the ground nuts with the cocoa powder. Add eggs one at a time and mix well and then add sugar. When all eggs are added, beat well. Spoon into cake pan and place on the middle or upper oven rack, and bake for 25 to 35 mins or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. ( I cooked mine 35 mins and there was still a bit of chocolate on my toothpick, but I went ahead and took it out anyway) Let it cool 10 mins and turn out of pan and remove paper.

When I took it out of the pan, I let it cool a bit before I turned it over into a plate and then added the confectioners sugar.

She has some other recipes in the book that look really good. I've had the book awhile and never tried the recipe section til now.

Thanks for sharing your recipe! I think its okay that you posted it since you sited where you got the recipe from. It looks wonderful! I like the fact that it doesn't call for flour since gluten free flour can get expensive. I can't wait to try it!

Thanks David!

I checked out your recipes and that Chocolate Dream Dessert looked wonderful. Too bad I can't get a hold of mascarpone cheese. I don't even know what double cream is.

Sounds yummy though.

I figure as long as I don't post all the recipes she is at least getting advertising, in a way.

I hope you like the recipe, I did. It would go well with some chocolate icing too, I just left it off because I didn't need the extra calories.

I thought this recipe looked interesting, but I'm not sure about saffron threads or what you could use in place of them. (Any ideas?)

ALMOND SLICES (makes 8)

3 eggs

2/3 oz. ground almonds

7 oz. dried milk

7 oz. sugar

1/2 tsp. saffron threads

3 1/2 oz. unsalted butter

flaked almonds to decorate

1. Beat the eggs together in a bowl and set aside.

2. Place he ground almonds, dried milk, sugar and saffron in a large mixing bowl and mix well.

3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Pour the melted butter over the dry ingredients and mix well until thouroughly blended.

4. Add the reserved beaten eggs to the mixture and mix well.

5. Spread the mixture in a shallow 9' square pan and bake in a preheated oven 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until a fine metal skewer comes out clean.

6. Cut the almond cake into 8 slices. Decorate with flaked almonds to serve. Serve hot or cold.

Hi 'hayley3',

Mascarpone cheese is a soft Italian cheese and is used a lot in Italian type desserts like 'Tiramsu' etc,

it comes in a tub and you should be able to find it at the deli or cheese counter of your local

Supermarket or large Convenience Store.

.

Double Cream is a high fat content cream or Thick whipping cream ( Cholesterol City here we come!).

Best Regards,

David

I just made this and I love it! I used almond meal instead of walnuts as my dh doesn't like walnut. It is great, it does taste a lot like a brownie to me. I drizzled icing over top (the icing from the pumpkin bars, cream cheese, butter, icing sugar and vanilla) and it's very pretty and tastes wonderful. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. After my Thanksgiving pie and cookie disasters I was sure I wouldn't be able to pull off a decent dessert again! :D :D
