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
  • 1 lemon
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • salt

Directions

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