DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F
  • Lightly butter and flour an 8-inch round cake pan.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the egg yolks and sugar together until light and fluffy, approximately 4 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks.
  • Fold one quarter of the whites into the egg-yolk mixture to lighten it.
  • Add the ground walnuts, stirring until thoroughly blended.
  • Carefully fold in the remaining egg whites to maintain a light texture.
  • Pour the batter into the pan and bake for about 60 minutes or until firm and golden brown.
  • Cool on a rack before removing the cake from the pan.
  • To serve, slice into wedges.
  • If desired, dust alternately with powdered sugar and cocoa and arrange with fresh berries.
  • WINE SUGGESTIONS:
  • Late Harvest Riesling or Sweet Orange Muscat wines.
