The 3-Ingredient Walnut Cake That Offers A Taste Of Italy

0 4

While the original three-ingredient recipe is perfect in its simplicity, other variations exist that either swap or supplement ingredients. A typical supplementary ingredient is powdered sugar to create a sweeter, melt-in-your-mouth topping and a more aesthetic presentation. Another popular addition is lemon or orange zest — or even candied citron — mixed into the batter before cooking.

Other more elaborate variations add cocoa powder, chocolate chips or vanilla to the batter. Breakfast variations supplement the ground walnuts with a small portion of flour and butter, stuffing the torta with ricotta or mascarpone. If walnuts aren’t your favorite, hazelnuts and almonds are great alternatives for the nutty, rich flour. If you want to play up the nuttiness of the cake, you can use amaretto, another famously Italian liqueur. If you’d like a more elaborate or richer topping, Nutella, whipped ricotta and honey, sliced pears, or fresh berries would all offer wonderful complementary flavors and creamy or juicy textural contrasts to the dense walnut cake.
