I was surprised when various friends told me of this cake that their nonnas made. And when I made it I was surprised to find everyone still likes it, even if they haven’t had it for years. It would have been the kind of thing that was thrown together with simple ingredients always on hand. It reminds me of the Marie biscuits we used to have as children — one with a layer of butter, another with a layer of jam and sandwiched together.
