Engadine Nut Cake (Swiss Nut Cake)

It's winter over here in Melbourne and winter to me means cold, short days and snow. I get two out of those three, unfortunately hardly ever snow though! Growing up in Germany meant we were not too far from Switzerland which meant we could go skiing some years. I remembered vividly one time when we went skiing my grandmother on my father's side came with us and the day we arrived we went to this cafe and had 'Engadiner Nusstorte', a swiss nut cake from the region of Engadine.

A Country Wedding Cake

Unfortunately, since starting a new job in February I don't find nearly enough time for baking anymore as I would like too. But when my brother and (then still prospective) sister-in-law asked me whether I wanted to make their wedding cake I was more than happy to get my baking utensils out!
