Graham Cracker-Nut Torte

Yield 1 (9-inch) torte
This brownielike torte will stick to the pieplate; don't try to turn it out onto a cake plate. Bring individual servings to the table.


  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

How to Make It

  1. Combine egg yolks and next 6 ingredients, stirring well.

  2. Beat egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; fold into crumb mixture. Spoon into a greased and floured 9-inch pieplate.

  3. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm or cold with sweetened whipped cream, if desired.
