Flourless Nut Torte Technique Photos

Mar 28, 2015 | From the kitchen of Rose

While going through and editing out over 2000 of my photos on the computer I discovered this great series of step-by-step photos, taken by Woody, of the Hungarian Jancsi Torta from Rose's Heavenly Cakes.

As I have just posted a coffee pecan version of the cake, we thought it would be helpful to share the technique photos that are essentially the same.

Hi Shi Hao,
We suggest substituting an equal weight of other nut flours, and adjust from your results. Enjoy your detective testing.

Would the cake work if we substitute walnut flour with other nut flour despite the difference in the amount of nut oil present in the flour?
