Passover Orange Walnut Torte

Passover Orange Walnut Torte

This kosher for Passover torte is made with just a few simple ingredients. The orange juice and zest, combined with walnuts and cinnamon is my favourite dessert for Pesach. The egg whites act as the leavening agent and give it the volume. It is important to work very quickly once the matzo meal is added to the egg yolk mixture as it tends to soak the liquid almost instantly.

  • 4 eggs, separated
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 200 grams walnuts, coarsely ground
  • 1 orange zest
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup oil plus more for the pan
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup matzo meal plus more for the pan

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9 inch cake pan with oil and dust with matzo meal, set aside. In a large bowl whip the egg whites to stiff peaks, in another bowl, mix the egg yolks with sugar, and add the orange zest, orange juice, oil and cinnamon. Add the matzo meal to the egg yolk mixture and fold in the whipped egg whites. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool to room temperature and serve with a light dusting of icing sugar.

    Where do the walnuts come into play? I see them in the ingredients list, but not in the instructions.
