Savor a slice of this delectable dessert for National Pecan Torte Day on August 21st.

A torte is a type of cake that is filled with layers of whipped cream, jam, mousse, buttercream, fruits, or nuts. Traditionally, the cake aspect of the torte is made with a minimal amount of flour if any at all and also avoids both baking powder and baking soda. Breadcrumbs and ground nuts are used instead of flour and are mixed with sugar, eggs, and flavoring. 

The pecan torte is a favorite in southern kitchens, especially in Texas where the state tree is pecan. The pecan itself is full of beneficial nutrients including over 19 vitamins and minerals as well as a wealth of healthy fats, protein, and fiber.  

So whether you stop by your local bakery for a slice or try your hand at making the deliciously dense layers by hand, be sure to enjoy this sweet, nutty treat on August 21st for National Pecan Torte Day.
