Description

Stroscia is a dessert typical of Pietrabruna in Italy's Liguria region, where it showcases a local ingredient: olive oil. A nod to the Ligurian word strosciare ("to break"), the brittle cake must be broken rather than sliced. It's sprinkled with sugar before serving, a final touch that further heightens its appeal.

    This cake is fantastic, not horrifically heavy and very good with coffee. Thank you for the recipe, you've inspired me to make a Christmas-spiced version of this instead of a traditional Christmas fruitcake!
