This delightful Florentine Carnival cake is a sweet flatbread built from a yeasted dough, one that incorporates honey, vanilla, orange juice and orange zest. It's also enriched with lard. During Carnival season, this cake appears at bakeries, pastry shops and bars throughout Florence. Some are filled with whipped cream, chocolate or custard; most are showered with powdered sugar. The dough needs about two hours to rise, so plan accordingly.

Ingredients

  • 350 grams flour
  • 100 grams lard
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 15 grams yeast (brewer’s)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. To prepare the yeast starter:
  2. Dissolve the brewer’s yeast in 30 grams of warm water, add 150 grams of flour and let the starter rise overnight.
  3. The next day:
  4. Add the eggs, the remaining flour, lard, sugar, honey, vanilla extract, and the orange juice and peel, knead until the dough is smooth and uniform in consistency.
  5. Roll out the dough and place it in a deep rectangular baking pan greased with lard.
  6. Let the dough rise for approximately 2 hours.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for approximately 40 minutes. It should be a hazelnut color, approximately 4 centimeters in thickness.
  8. Let it cool, remove it from the pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar. The lily, emblem of Florence, is normally stenciled with powdered cocoa in the center of the cake.
