This flourless Passover torte is made with matzah meal, walnuts, chocolate, apples, and more.

6 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup chopped walnuts
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, grated
2 apples, peeled, cored, and grated
1/2 cup matzah meal
Confectioners' sugar for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until they are lemon-colored and thick enough to form a ribbon when dribbled from a spoon.
  3. Gently stir in walnuts, chocolate, apples, and matzah meal.
  4. Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, but are not too dry. Fold the beaten egg whites into the egg yolk mixture gently but thoroughly, using a rubber spatula.
  5. Turn the mixture into the greased springform pan. Bake 45 to 60 minutes, until the cake springs back when lightly touched.
  6. Cool in pan before removing to the serving platter. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
