When I say Caprese, nearly everyone things about salad. The also typical tomato and mozzarella slices with basil and olive oil. That’s right. And I love it. But even in the northern parts of Italy they never have heard about this very typical, very yummy, very light cake from Naples with the same name. Though it’s a very famous one and very often eaten.
When I first talked to friends here in Italy they looked at me like I would have soap for breakfast. How can you bake a Caprese? Well, and again I notice how different we are in one country. Many things I am used to, I don’t find in the north and very often, when I talk about something that seems very normal to me for the people here in the north it seems strange. In particular many things around the kitchen.
A Caprese cake is made of almonds, sugar (in my case honey or maple syrup), chocolate, butter (ghee) and some eggs. That’s it. Nothing more. All well mixed together and baked. A little icing sugar on the top for decoration and voilà! We have a nice almond chocolate cake that will intrigue everyone.
