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

  1. Heat the milk in a saucepan, do not boil.
  2. In another saucepan, combine the bittersweet cocoa, the sugar, and the flour.
  3. Slowly add the hot milk to the saucepan, a little at a time, stirring with a wooden spoon to avoid lumps.
  4. Stir the mixture constantly while on low heat; using a heat diffuser is recommended.
  5. When the mixture thickens, after approximately 15 minutes, remove the saucepan from the heat.
  6. Make 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.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 10 hours before serving.

Making chocolate sauce is tricky and there are good tips within the instructions. The most important thing is not to rush it. This sauce will take 15 minutes of constant attention. Once the chocolate sauce is cooled, slices of purchased cake are layered into a baking dish with the sauce and refrigerated, allowing the sauce to thoroughly soak the layers. The recipe suggests that bundt cake may also be used, but the lighter sponge cake would seem to be a better choice for such a rich confection.
