For this dessert, the Portuguese kindly accommodate anyone with a gluten intolerance by making a flourless pudding. On the other hand, they made it completely inedible for people with nut allergies, but you can't please everyone. I wish I knew more about the origins of this pudding (apart from it being Portuguese), but I could not find any information about it. I actually think it sounds more reminiscent of English steamed puddings than anything else, particularly since walnuts are a British grown nut. Whatever its history, I'm so glad I discovered Portuguese walnut pudding. It is extremely tasty and light, and uses just three ingredients. Based on the brands I used, each slice should be about 267 calories.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1hr 30 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

Ingredients
225g shelled walnuts
4 large eggs
100g Xylitol sweetener (or caster sugar if your prefer)

Method
Separate the eggs and beat the yolks with sugar.
Whisk the egg whites and fold into the yolks.
Ground the walnuts in a food processor and mix into the mixture.
Pout the mixture into a pudding bowl, and cover it up with either a muslin cloth or piece of tine foil.
Steam.
