Kuchen de nuez - Waltnut kuchen for my Mom

Really I was thinking to publish this recipe before Mother's Day, but simply I can't!
(I have  2 weeks with an earache and a cold that I'm not 100%)

But anyway I have  to make a recipe for my mom .
I know she loves I bake for her!
I was very touched when I  read  some friend'blogs  talking about their mothers, I know Im lucky still she is with us.

I love so much my Mom  . 
I learned to cook  and bake with her when I was about 10 years and we have supported each other in difficult times . She makes me laugh many times. 
And her life is not easy I know.
( For her is difficult walk and she miss that)
She loves tea time so  wanted a waltnut kuchen.
And long time since I did one!
And she  given me  waltnuts .  So I made....

I saw many recipes and finally chose one of my own Notebook of recipes that had never been done.
My mom loved it and I was happy she enjoy.. I did everything in Sunday  morning.
So   when I took the pictures was fresh out of the oven.
I hope you enjoy too if you try this recipe and hope you had a lovely Mother's Day!
A hug to everyone!

Kuchen de nuez

Quería hacer esta receta antes del día de la madre pero me fue imposible (he estado muy enferma con dolor de oídos y resfriado) 
Pero finalmente la hice el mismo dia de la madre para llevarselo a mi mamá.
Ella quería un Kuchen de nuez y encima me había regalado nueces.
Miré muchas recetas (he hecho otros kuchen de nuez antes) y encontré en mi cuaderno de recetas una que no había hecho.
Y fue deliciosa y maravillosa a mi mamá le encantó.


1 1/2 taza de harina sin polvos de hornear
1/2 taza de azúcar
2 cucharaditas polvos de hornear
2 cucharadas de mantequilla
1 huevo
1 yema
1 cucharadita extracto de vainilla


2 tazas de nueces molidas
1 1/2 taza de azúcar
125 gramos de mantequilla
1/2 taza de crema espesa


En un bol unir  el harina, azúcar, polvos de hornear, agregar mantequilla  el huevo y la yema finalmente el extracto de vainilla. Unir bien. Hacer una bola y reservar por unos diez minutos. No amasar.
Precalentar horno 180°c.
Despues extender esta masa en un molde de unos 22 o 24 cm de fondo removible y llevar a horno por 10 minutos.


En un sartén dorar el azúcar revolviendo y cuando esté dorada agregar la mantequilla, A continuación agregar las nueces molidas y la crema, siempre a fuego suave revolver la mezcla.Debe quedar de una consistencia espesa.
Vaciar esta crema sobre la masa de kuchen y llevar a horno nuevamente 10 minutos más (180°c)
Esperar que se enfrie completamente antes de cortar.
Se puede refrigerar antes unos 30 minutos .

  47. I had to pop over from 'Whisks' blog to read this lovely post. Moms are so special. My mum loved baking and the smell from the kitchen was always wonderful ... I remember her with so many Happy Memories.

    My husband is a Type 2 diabetic so although we eat cakes we use almond flour, as it doesn't contain as many carbohydrates/sugars as ordinary flour, which raises his blood sugar levels ... it's important for a diabetic to keep them as near to normal of those that a non diabetic has ...

    But this sure looks a great recipe idea - and thanks for sharing a lovely story.

    All the best Jan

  48. Thanks Jan.my dad is diabetic type 2 so only bake for my mom:)
    But sometimes I make for my dad some treats with sucralosa:)

  49. I published (most of) my mother's day recipes late too ;-) They are good for other occasions too, I just figured! Your dessert looks delicious!
