Fried Dough with Sugar and Cinnamon
Makes 1 Cake
This easy-to-prepare schiacciata (flat cake) from Florence has an interesting, moist texture, and pleasant orange taste. As the name implies, this cake is only about 1/2-inch high after it bakes. Cut it into squares or rounds, or use cookie cutters for a more festive look.
I make this wonderful cake in a 9.5” fluted tart pan. It makes the exact volume for the pan and I come out with a wonderful sponge base to fill with fruit or custard. I have been making this for years and is one of my family’s favorites
