Description

Nua cake, or Torta Nua, is a sponge cake that’s filled with two types of cream—one plain, the other chocolate--which are similar to what you find in a cannoli, meaning utterly delicious. The butterless cake relies on extra-virgin olive oil for moisture and a subtle hint of flavor. Once the batter is in the cake pan, the two creams are dolloped on top and the cake bakes up around them. It’s easy and unexpected, perfect for everyday or for casual entertaining.
