Walnut Graham Torte Recipe

Walnut Graham Torte Recipe

This torte is great to take to someone's house for dinner - I rarely have any to bring back home. It reminds me of desserts my grandma used to make.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups diced peeled apples
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs; mix well. Combine graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk and mix well. Fold in apples and 3/4 cup walnuts.
  • 2. Spread into three greased 8-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
