Polenta and Pine Nut Torte

    I found this recipe in the fantastic new Sunset Cookbook and made it last night. It is very easy and delicious. It was a perfect partner with hot tea today on a very dreary January afternoon. The cake is tender and moist, even on day 2. I think I would also enjoy it with a raspberry sauce-the color would be a beautiful contrast.

    I agree that this is very easy to make and would be great with tea. I like simple desserts so enjoyed this, but it's not decadent, which a lot of people look for in desserts. A couple of additional notes: I used yellow cornmeal, but will try with polenta next time. 1/2 cup sugar was too much for the top; not all of mine melted. I used a cake pan (vs. a fluted tart pan) - not sure if that made a significant difference!
