Mix the bread crumbs with the wine, grated lemon rind, and lemon juice. Beat the egg yolks until very light. Add the sugar gradually and continue beating. Stir in the bread crumbs, salt, almonds, and baking powder. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter. Spoon into a buttered 9x12-inch baking pan. Bake in a moderate oven 350°F for about 40 minutes.
Although the name of this recipe lacks glamor, the torte itself is very delicious. The original recipe in the old country cookbooks call for rye bread crumbs, but white bread crumbs give equally good results.
