The history of the Torta Caprese:

This cake is very old. But not very far actually. They were the twenties, and Capri had landed three criminals sent by Al Capone for some business. They had ordered a cake to the chef Carmine Di Fiore. Careful and scrupulous, Carmine that time forgot a crucial detail: the flour.
A mistake that on that occasion could lead to a tragedy, but fate decided otherwise: the criminals appreciated the idea of Carmine and demanded the recipe. This way  Di Fiore began producing the experiment regularly to baptise Capri cake.

 

And here is the traditional recipe for this delicious cake! Perfect for Christmas time as a dessert cake!

  1. I never knew the story behind the torta, thanks for telling it! Really cool learning the history behind a dish. I for one am really excited that he forgot the flour! LOL It’s the one thing I can’t have, GF flour blends are good, but never quite the same as I remember baked goods with regular flour, so this is going to be a real treat for me! YUM!
