This delightful Florentine Carnival cake is a sweet flatbread built from a yeasted dough, one that incorporates honey, vanilla, orange juice and orange zest. It's also enriched with lard. During Carnival season, this cake appears at bakeries, pastry shops and bars throughout Florence. Some are filled with whipped cream, chocolate or custard; most are showered with powdered sugar. The dough needs about two hours to rise, so plan accordingly.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet pastry dough
  • 400 grams artichokes
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 grams soft cheese
  • 100 grams mozzarella cheese
  • 150 milliliters heavy cream
  • 50 grams parmesan cheese
  • 100 grams pancetta
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 5 ounces white wine
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.

  3. Coarsely chop the garlic and the shallot and sauté them in a non-stick pan with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
  4. Add the artichokes and sauté for a few minutes.
  5. Add the wine and allow it to evaporate completely.
  6. Once cooked, season to taste with salt.
  7. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the heavy cream, the Parmesan cheese, and the robiola. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Place the sheet of puff pastry in a parchment paper-lined pie plate.
  9. Place the artichokes, the scamorza cubes, the pancetta bacon cubes and the egg and cheese mixture in the pie plate.
  10. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until golden.
  11. Allow the quiche to rest for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  12. Serve the quiche warm.

What an appetizing recipe that is just lip-smacking. The only downside is that this one is very time consuming to make. It took me a great deal of time to get it all right. I couldn't find pancetta in my area, but I found a great compromise that worked out just fine. I didn't use white wine trying to cut down on the bitterness, and it did help just a bit. I choose to use apple juice in its place, and it added the sweet nature that it needed.
