Flourless Walnut Cake

This is a recipe that my coworker shared with me.  I was so excited to try it at home, and it was everything that I thought it would be.  Absolutely delicious! And it has no flour. The frosting is quite simple, but perfectly compliments the nutty texture of the sponge cake.

Ingredients
Biskvit (sponge cake)
9 eggs, separate egg whites from egg yolks
¾ cup granulated white sugar
2 cups walnuts
Frosting
1 can of cooked condensed milk
2 sticks of butter, softened at room temperature
3 teaspoons of lemon juice, freshly squeezed

Assembly:
Once the cake has cooled to room temperature, mix the butter with condensed milk as indicated above, take
one half of the sponge cake and spread ⅓ of the frosting over the top, cover with the 2nd sponge cake and
spread the rest of the frosting on top and around the cake. I decorated the cake with fresh raspberries and
toasted walnuts. Leave in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours so the frosting has time to set.
