Walnut flourless cake

Written By Sam Henselijn

Flourless walnut cake is possibly the simplest I have ever made. Incredibly moist, the recipe calls only for three ingredients: walnuts, eggs, and natural unrefined sugar. I have used rapadura sugar, although coconut sugar or muscovado would work well.


Serves 8

  • 3½ cups walnuts
  • 4 large free-range eggs
  • 1 cup rapadura, coconut or muscovado sugar


  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Grated zest of one lemon
  • Coconut flour or icing sugar for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 160C, and grease or line a cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Process walnuts for 1-2 minutes in a food processor until nuts resemble dense flour.
  3. In a large bowl, add ground walnuts, eggs, and sugar. Mix until well combined.
  4. Pour mixture into the prepared cake tin, then bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until golden on top, and the middle springs back slightly when touched.
  5. Remove from oven and leave to cool for at least 15 minutes before carefully transferring to a plate.
  6. Once cooled, dust with coconut flour or icing sugar if desired. I will keep it for 4-5 days in an airtight container.

Few Ingredients Needed

  • Three and a half cups of walnuts
  • Four giant eggs
  • A cup of rapadura or coconut (or even muscovado sugar)

Extra Ingredients (Optional)Flourless Walnut Cake

  • Two teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • The zest of one lemon finely chopped
  • Coconut flour or confectioners’ sugar for sprinkling

How To Make a Flourless Walnut Cake

Step 1

Set the oven to about 150°C, oil your cake pan, or line it with baking paper.

Step 2

In a blender, process the walnuts for 180 seconds or until the nuts turn a thick flour.

Step 3

Put the ground walnuts, eggs, and sugar in a baking dish. Stir vigorously until everything is well blended.

Step 4

Slowly pour the final mixture into the ready cake pan and bake it for about 35 minutes.

Step 5

You will see the cake rise like a soufflé and fall slightly as it starts to cool. If you do not overbake the cake, it will feel moist when ready. The cake should look solid and not wobble; the skewer stuck in the middle should come out without feeling wet when you touch it.

Step 6

Take it out of the oven and cool it for at least 20 minutes before moving it cautiously to a plate.

Step 7

When it’s cool, sprinkle it with coconut flour or confectioner sugar. It will stay fresh for a few days in an airtight container.
