Description

Thought to have originated in Poland, savarin is a rich, yeasted cake, that's usually soaked in rum or kirsch and finished with a dollop of whipped cream. In this case, the cake is soaked in alcohol-spiked lemon syrup before it's removed from its mold and garnished with marmalade and fruit slices. The southern Italian liqueur, limoncello, would certainly work well here.
