Almond Torte 

My tea time is not complete without a piece of cake. So I decided to bake a torte made with almond flour and vanilla. It’s eggless and gluten free too . The sweet and nutty flavor of this torte is scrumptious. 


Before we get to the recipe let me show you how many different ways this torte can be served .

  • These tiny little squares are perfect for tea time. This sweet torte pairs very well with the strong espresso.

  • You could change this into a tasty dessert with a drizzle of raspberry sauce. The tart rasberry sauce cuts the sweetness of the torte and it tastes yummy .

  • You could eat it with vanilla ice cream. It instantly changes into a fancy date night dessert . 


Whichever way you have it, it tastes divine .

    Torte sounds better than a cake right ? 

    The difference between a torte and a cake is not much because both are made with similar ingredients , But a torte is mainly made with nut flours with very little flour and lots butter to make it rich. 

    Here is the recipe …

    Dry ingredients :

    • Almond powder …. 2 cups
    • Gluten free flour ……½ cup
    • (Or all purpose flour)
    • Baking powder ………. 1  teaspoon
    • Baking soda …………… 1/4 teaspoon
    • Salt …….. 1/4 teaspoon
    • Granulated sugar………1/4 cup

    Wet ingredients :

    • Sweetened condensed milk …1 can
    • Unsalted butter….. 1 stick or 1/2 cup
    • vanilla extract …… 1 tablespoon
    • Water ……… 1/4 cup

    1. Take all the dry ingredients, almond powder, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and powdered sugar.Sift them together and keep it aside.

    2. In a glass bowl melt the butter in the microwave. Let it cool for sometime.

    3.  Now add the condensed milk , vanilla extract and water and mix it well . Now slowly add the dry ingredients and gently mix it with a fork. Do not over mix .

    4. Remember to Pre heat the oven at 350*F for 10 minutes.

    5. Take a round cake pan,butter the sides of the pan, Put a layer of parchment paper at the bottom and pour the batter.

    6. Bake at 350*F for 25 minutes. 

    7. Stick a took pick in the center, if it comes out clean the cake is ready.

    8. Let the torte cool completely and then take it out of the pan.

    9.  Run a knife to make sure the sides are not sticking to the pan then invert it on a cake plate.

    10. You can dust it with some powdered sugar before serving it .

    This recipe has simple ingredients and simple procedure so it’s very easy to make and it gets ready in minutes. If you are entertaining , It will make a great impact at your party for sure. 

    Notes

    If you can resist the intoxicating smell of vanilla wait and have this torte the next day, it tastes amazing. 

    I bake this in the night and let it rest till next morning, it gets so moist and soft which makes it extremely tasty.
