Dried fruit strudel from Assisi
Rocciata di Assisi
Dried fruit strudel is a traditional cake from Umbria, which can be traced back to pre-Roman times. But it is still highly popular and one of the joys of the winter season.
There is nothing rocky about the dried fruit strudel in spite of the formal Italian name ‘rocciata’. The cake, known locally also as attorta and ‘ntorta is made from a sweet pasta dough rolled up around a delicious filling of apples mixed with dried figs, prunes and nuts. A veritable energy bomb that will keep you warm and happy during the cold months.
