  • About

In Treviso, near Venice, there is a tradition of crumb cakes like this fregolotta and Torta Sbrisolona of Mantua. There are many documented versions of the fregolotta, some actually sponge cakes containing ground nuts. This variation is a simple one, a sort of giant cookie meant to accompany a cup of coffee or tea.
