Chef’s advices
Many “old” recipes expect, like this one, to use “strutto”; if you prefer, you can replace it with 130 gr of butter, softened at room temperature.
To make the cake even more delicious, you can accompany with a warm custard served on the side.
Serve with a sparkling white as Recioto Gambellara.
