Torta della Nonna is a traditional Roman and Tuscan dessert to be found in most Italian bakeries. Rome, the eternal city, produces one version and Naples, the city for the sweet toothed on the Italian mainland, the other.
The cake is delicious, similar to the PastieraNapoletana and is made at Easter. The Italians aren’t a nation of cake eaters and apart from the small pastries eaten on Sundays and special holidays (that are usually bought at the local pasticceria), they prefer fruit and cheese. However, when they do bake a cake, it’s a symphony and this one is one of the best.
