Instructions for making Italian cake with walnuts and cream


For the crust:

1 1/2 cups of flour

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of butter

1 egg

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/4 cup of finely chopped walnuts

For the filling:

1 1/2 cups of coarsely chopped walnuts

1 cup of heavy cream

1/2 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of honey

2 tablespoons of butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


Start by preparing the crust. In a large bowl, mix the flour and sugar. Add the butter and vanilla extract. Rub the butter with sugar and flour using your fingers until you have fine crumbs.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg and add it to the crust mixture. Stir until the dough comes together. Then, add the finely chopped walnuts and mix thoroughly.

Form the dough into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).

Take the dough out of the refrigerator and divide it into two parts. Roll out each part into a thin circle and transfer it to a pie dish.

Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork. Then, bake the crusts in the oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until they turn golden brown. Remove them from the oven and let them cool.

Now, prepare the filling. In a saucepan, combine the heavy cream, sugar, honey, butter, and vanilla extract. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to boil.

Add the coarsely chopped walnuts to the filling and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Pour the prepared filling onto the cooled crusts.

Place the cake in the refrigerator for several hours to set and become firmer.

Before serving, dust the cake with powdered sugar or decorate as desired. Enjoy your Italian walnut and cream cake!

This cake pairs wonderfully with a cup of coffee or tea and is sure to delight all walnut and dessert lovers.
