Preparation: 10 minutes
Baking time: 30 minutes
Ingredients (for 6 people):
150 g Grenoble walnuts (without shell)
40 grams of flour
3 eggs (available in our shop)
150g powdered sugar
100 grams of butter
(available in our store)
2 tablespoons Armagnac AOC
1 pinch of salt
Finely chop the nuts and mix with half of the powdered sugar. Mix the other half of the sugar with the softened butter. Now add the nut and sugar mixture, then, one at a time, add the eggs, salt, flour and Armagnac.
Grease a 22 cm tart pan with butter, put the dough on it and bake at 200°C for about 30 minutes. The cake is ready when it is lightly golden brown and still moist on the inside.
You can serve the cake with a cream of your choice, drizzle with caramel or chocolate sauce, decorate with halves of nuts or even fruit. Anything you like is allowed!
It can be kept in the fridge for several days and can also be easily frozen.
