Pastiera Cake

The “Pastiera” is a famous (cheese)cake typical of Naples (Napoli), that is eaten during Easter time. Indeed, its ingredients are a homage to the Springtime and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ: it is made with shortbread, eggs, “ricotta”(a sort of cottage cheese), candied fruit, sweet wheat and rosewater scent. The eggs symbolize the Resurrection, as well as the shape of the shortbread crust, that reminds of a Crux. It is quite unnecessary to say that it’s amazing!! You may find it also in some bakeries in Rome, and if you do, don’t hesitate to try it!!
