Italian Cake’s


This is my grandmother’s Easter ricotta pie recipe, with just a few changes.

This is my own Christmas Fruitcake recipe I have been making for years. Fruits are better soaked ahead of time, but will be just as good steaming them in water hours before being used. I bake these about mid November or the first saturday of Advent. By Christmas, the cakes are sinful.

This four-layer cake is a unique twist on the Italian-American favorite but still has that traditional cannoli flavor.

Great served with a cup of coffee or a glass of sweet dessert wine, sbrisolona will win your favor with its crumbly texture and simple yet irresistible flavor.

jam tart

Jam tarts are classic Italian desserts. Every home baker and her nonna has a favorite recipe, often incorporating homemade jam created with ripe fruit from the orto, or garden patch.

This is another one of my rustic cakes that can be enjoyed for breakfast or as a dessert and best of all it can be put together quickly with just a whisk.

This is more like a flan, than a cake or a pudding, but he calls it a budino (pudding in Italian).

Hazelnuts are the star of the show in this cake from Italy’s Piedmont region.

Once upon a time, the pound cake was so named because it combined a pound each of butter, sugar, eggs and flour.
