Categories: Cakes / Desserts

8    Eggs
1  cup  Sugar (or more)
2  cups  Walnuts
2  cups  Almonds
1    Orange, rind grated & juice
1    Lemon, rind grated & juice
3  tablespoons  Grated dry bread
2  tablespoons  Vanilla
2  tablespoons  Maraschino liquor
2  tablespoons  Rum
1/8  teaspoon  Allspice

Grind the nuts with a special grinder until them become as flour. You will have to have a special grinder for this. Beat 8 yolks and 4 whites of eggs with sugar for about 1/2 hour, on speed 8. While the eggs are beating, prepare the following ingredients. Grate the bread. Prepare the rind and juice from the orange and the lemon; add flavoring and allspice to the rind and juice, keeping bread separate. When the egg yolks are ready, beat 4 egg whites, which you have reserved, until stiff. Now fold into the egg yolks all the ingredients, alternating them. Do this very gently, so tha tyou do not beat the air out. Grease a 14 x 10 inch pan heavily and flour it well. Bake at 325 F for about 1 hour. Be sure to preheat your oven to the correct temperature before baking the torta. When torta is baked, cool for 10 to 15 minutes and turn out on dish. Either frost the cake or use powdered sugar on top as desired. Serve. Source: Cathy Arkovich "Our Favorite Recipes" St. Anthony Croatian Catholic Church Typed for you by Karen Mintzias
