Method:
Preheat the oven to 165°C.
To make the base, grind the pumpkin seeds, almonds and walnuts to a flour-like consistency 
then mix in the ground flax seed, sugar and melted butter. Press the mixture to the bottom of 
a spring form pan and bake for 15 to 20 mins.
Reduce the oven to 150°C.
For the filling, beat the egg whites until just firm and then beat in the vanilla, sugar and ¾ of 
the Kozja skuta until well combined. Beat in the egg yolks one at a time.
Slowly stir in the flour then fold in the remaining Kozja skuta, then pour the mixture into the 
cake base.
Bake for about 30 mins in a water bath, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out 
clean. Let it cool and chill in the fridge for about 4 hours.
Serve with a drizzle of honey and a sprinkling of walnuts.
Dobar Tek!
