Description

Just three ingredients — a baguette, Italian sausage removed from the casings and Pecorino cheese — make for a satisfying snack, lunch of light dinner. Best of all, you can adapt them with what you have on hand, such as chopped veggies, sopressata or pepperoni.

Ingredients

1 sponge cake (or bundt cake)
milk (1 lt.)
7 tablespoons cocoa (bittersweet)
7 tablespoons sugar
7 tablespoons flour

Directions

1Heat the milk in a saucepan, do not boil.
2In another saucepan, combine the bittersweet cocoa, the sugar, and the flour.
3Slowly add the hot milk to the saucepan, a little at a time, stirring with a wooden spoon to avoid lumps.
4Stir the mixture constantly while on low heat; using a heat diffuser is recommended.
5When the mixture thickens, after approximately 15 minutes, remove the saucepan from the heat.
6Make a layer of chocolate sauce in a baking dish, then a layer of sponge cake slices, one slice next to the other without overlapping, continue alternating layers, making sure the sponge cake is well soaked in chocolate sauce.
7Refrigerate for at least 10 hours before serving.
