Chocolate cake with biscuits
Torta di cantuccini al cioccolato
Occassionally, I end up with a store of biscuits and cookies that for some reason or other remains in the cupboard. That’s when a typical Italian housewife trick comes in handy. Instead of throwing the biscuits out, they are “recirculated” in disguise, for instance, like this intensely good chocolate cake with almond biscuits.
This time I used Prato biscuits or cantuccini, but it might as well have been Amaretti macaroons or ladyfingers (Savoiardi). As long as they are good, dry and hard.
