This is the most classic of all the Italian cake recipes. Absolutely simple, very light, and flavored with a faint hint of lemon peel, this cake would be on stand-by for children’s teas or for dunking into bowls of milky coffee for breakfast. It is delicious thinly spread with cold jelly that has a slightly tart taste, such as sour plum or cherry. You can also serve it in thin slices to dunk into dessert wine as a very simple finishing touch to your meal.
