Description

Stroscia is a dessert typical of Pietrabruna in Italy's Liguria region, where it showcases a local ingredient: olive oil. A nod to the Ligurian word strosciare ("to break"), the brittle cake must be broken rather than sliced. It's sprinkled with sugar before serving, a final touch that further heightens its appeal.

Ingredients

500 grams flour
1 tablespoon cocoa (powdered bittersweet)
250 milliliters extra-virgin olive oil
wine
100 milliliters marsala wine
1 lemon
200 grams sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
salt

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 200C.
2Sift the flour with the vanilla baking powder directly into a bowl.
3Add 180 grams of sugar, the cocoa, a pinch of salt, the marsala wine, the lemon peel, and the extra virgin olive oil.
4Mix these ingredients together until the mixture is firm and uniform in consistency.
5Line a 24 centimeter pan with wax paper, add the batter, and bake for approximately 30 minutes.
6The cake is done when it becomes golden or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
7Sprinkle with the remaining sugar and let the cake cool before serving.
