    I got impressed, I have tried a lot of Italian stuff but not that cake. a really playfully inventive recipe – blood, chocolate, buiscuits, organges, lemon, just incredible!!! I will try to find something like that too!!!!

    Only in the south of Italy we make this cake when we kill the pig to make sausage, salame,ham and other homemade goods. The “sanguinaccio” is a very heavy cake: it’s a bomb for our diet and our cholesterol but it’s good!
    Try and let me know!
