THB #9 ~ Cinnamon Apple Walnut Torte

We at the The Home Bakers 

baked our 9th cake from
Lou Seibert Pappas'
Coffee Cakes, simple, sweet and savory
Cinnamon apple walnut torte
I separated the eggs and whipped up the whites first,
then the yolks with the sugar...

then combine the two

add the filling ingredients

looking good while baking
below: mmmph I seem to have an ingredient left over!

but after cooling, the torte became soggy.... ;(  bcos of the missing flour!

**What I did was separate the whites from the yolks and whipped them up separately, add the stiff whites to the whipped yolks; fold in part of the walnuts, all the dried fruit and sliced apples (and the 1/4cup flour *which I 4GOT!*); topped with the rest of the chopped nuts.


  1. texture might be different without flour, but taste must be as yummy :)

  2. Hi Emily,
    I was laughing, (sorry!), when I read your comment at THB's Q&T regarding your missing ingredient! And I was thinking that maybe you bake this at night! It does not look soggy from the photos! Hope you enjoyed it nevertheless!! Have a great week!

  3. hi emily, your slice still looks so nice even you missed out that flour. The cakey layer that i got was just very thin and i would say for mine, it was like a fruity pie without the crust. quite tasty though.

  4. Looking at this makes me want to bake quickly ....

  5. It looks good Emily. Looks like the flour wasn't really necessary! ha ha

  6. Hi Emily! It looks like a blessing in disguise as your torte still looks absolutely delicious! :) Have a great day ahead!


  7. Looks great even though no flour was added! Will try your version next time! YUM! :)

  8. This looks great even though there wasnt any flour added. Yummy!

  9. Hi Emily,

    Forget adding flour? Your torte will be gluten-free then :D Interesting that the missing flour will create a different texture in the cake.
