  • About

This rich cake derives its intense flavor from walnuts and chocolate. Although it contains very little flour, it is not difficult to prepare, and it also keeps well.

The cake develops a crust on the top during baking. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for several minutes, then scrape away the crust with a sharp knife before inverting the cake onto a rack to cool.

Torta caprese is best served at room temperature. Do not refrigerate it, even if prepared the day before —
