  • About


  • 6 ozs. of nuts or walnuts
  • 6 ozs. of sugar
  • 6 ozs. of grated chocolate or powdered chocolate
  • 1 oz. of candied peel
  • 4 eggs, vanilla flavouring.


Pound the nuts in a mortar with the sugar and, when worked to a smooth paste, put them in a basin and mix with the chocolate and the yolks of egg, and flavour with the vanilla. Mix thoroughly and finally add the whites of eggs, beaten very stiffly, and the finely chopped candied peel. Butter a pie dish and sprinkle it with breadcrumbs. Pour the mixture into this and bake in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes.
