(Torta di Datteri, Mandorle e Noci) This incredibly simple dessert is also
incredibly delicious. The trick here is in using scissors to cut up the
dates and then mixing the dates and the nuts together slowly to make sure
the sticky fruit doesn’t clump together. Beat eggs with sugar in bowl. Add
softened butter and vanilla extract and beat well to mix. Sift together
flour and baking powder, add to egg mixture and stir to combine. Put
walnuts and almonds in bowl and stir to combine. Add dates, little at time,
stirring to mix very thoroughly. Add nut mixture to cake batter and fold
very carefully and thoroughly. Line 9″ round baking pan with parchment
paper. Pour mixture into pan and bake at 300~ until wooden skewer stuck in
middle comes out clean, about 30 to 35 minutes. Serve with whipped cream on
side. Each serving, without whipped cream: 512 cal; 29 gr fat; 51% fat.
