  This is truly my family's favorite cake and is always the requested birthday cake:FOR THE TORTE:10 jumbo eggs,10T.sugar,10 T.flour,10 T.ground walnuts,3tsp.baking powder,pinch of salt,1tsp.vanilla.Separate the 10 jumbo eggs,cream together the egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy,mix in 1tsp.of vanilla.sift together the flour,salt and baking powder.beat the egg whites until forms soft peaks ,not dry.Fold egg whites into the first mixture,then fold in the ground walnuts.grease and flour 2-9in.cake pans:Bake @ 325*for 25-30 min.Do not over bake it will be dry.COFFEE FROSTING:in the top of a double boiler 6 jumbo eggs well beaten,1 cup of sugar,2tsp.instant coffee disolved in 1/4 cup hot water,Cook and stir until thick custard,watch so it doesn't curdle,after it is done I put in the freezer to cool down fast and check often and whisk so it doesn't get lumpy.Beat 1# unsalted butter until light and fluffy,add cooled custard and beat until smooth,any small lumps will get smoothed out during beating.You may use preserves of your choice or a jam or jelly between the two layers,but there is more than enough frosting if you don't want to use the preserves.Frost entire torte and store in refrigerator,it's better after about 8 hours in the fridge.Please excuse my typing I'm just learning both typing and the computer,if there are any questions please feel free to ask.This recipe was lost ,I remembered my mom giving this recipe to a co worker of my brothers he called him and he didn't have it either.This was over twenty years later,my brother said let me check something he went down the basement and checked his tool box and the recipe was in there from the time he gave a copy to his friend,I was so happy I cried.There it was in her handwriting.I treasure this with all my heart and I hope you will too!

Oh, my goodness - well, your goodness to post such a long, involved recipe.  It's incredible.
And it's wonderful that your brother still had that - and remembered!

It sounds like more than I could handle.Embarassed

Looking after an elderly couple on the street?  May God bless and keep her.
I wish I lived nearby so I could take her cookies .... enough so she could take some to people on the street.

It sure looks beyond me.

Gale, I remember seeing this a while ago and was going to ask do you think it can be made with almonds?  I am not a fan of walnuts as they can be bitter at times.  I would guess that pecans could also be used.

I would think you could use any nut,in tortes the nuts are used in place of some of the flour or all of it..I think I would use pecans,I also prefer pecans over walnuts,but I have never noticed the walnuts to be bitter in this cake,I also sprinkle chopped walnuts on the outside of the cake after it is frosted. When you bake it watch it so it doesn't dry out.This is well worth the trouble,most of the work is in the frosting which is heavenly.

I also printed it.  I like anything with nuts but I'll have to try another kind as my hubby isn't that fond of walnuts.  I love them.
