Tosca cake with almond caramel topping
Torta di Tosca
This recipe has been in my family for generations, and I thought it was an Italian invention due to the name and the likeness with Florentines and Florentine cookies. Just to make sure I tried it on Google, and found the cake to be a Scandinavian favourite named after Puccini’s opera. Still, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Italians have a similar sponge cake with caramel and almond topping. And regardless of the origin, it tastes fantastic.
