This cake. I have quite a love affair with this one. It can be a bit dense, but the older I get, my love for it grows at the sam-ish rate. It's a recipe from my paternal grandmother, who would bake one every year without fail for my dad's birthday, since it was his favourite. She doesn't bake any more, which is a shame, but she handed us some of her recipes.
Prep time: 15 minutes, Cooking time: 30 minutes.
* I have absolutely no idea whether or not it is a Genovese speciality. It's what my Grandmother and the rest of my family call it.
** You can totally cheat and not foam the eggs white (add whole eggs in step 2 instead). But the resulting cake will be denser, and will feel heavier in your stomach. Either way, it's quite tasty.
