The Campania ricotta cake hails from the south of Italy offering a sandwich-like torte filled with rum-soaked donut pastry, a rich cream centre and a deliciously light taste. The dessert is made for Easter celebrations, but can be enjoyed all year round.

While the Campania cake might look rich at first glance, it is filled with an airy pastry and cream that is deceivingly much less heavy than it looks while offering great taste. The base is made from a spongy dough filled with hazeluts, cow milk, ricotta cheese and whipped cream infused with pear syrup. The sponge is topped with a thick layer of ricotta custard and topped with more sponge to create a gigantic ice cream sandwich. The dessert is chilled and sliced before serving.
