Torta Del Joyce Oroz

Torta Del Re—King’s Cake
This is a traditional cake of the Piedmont region of Northern Italy.
It is also a popular Passover cake among Italian Jews.
And appreciated by gluten intolerant people all over the world who appreciate delicious cake. Use sugar or substitute with stevia or xylitol. I like to use half sugar, half substitute.

King’s Cake


5 eggs, separated
2 cups almond meal
½ t. salt
1 t. vanilla
1 t. almond extract
Zest and juice of one lemon
Artificial sweetener equal to 1 ¼ cups sugar

Heat oven to 325, grease 10 inch baking dish or pan

  1. whisk egg yolks until light in color
  2. beat the rest of the ingredients except egg white,
ending with the almond meal. It will be stiff.
  1. beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  2. combine one third of the egg whites with the rest
of the mixture to loosen it up.
  1. fold in the rest of the egg whites, and put in pan.
  2. bake for about 30 minutes until toothpick comes
out clean. Let it cool completely in pan.

Don't worry, there is no cabbage in this cake recipe
