Schiacciata Alla Fiorentina


Schiacciata Alla Fiorentina is a Florentine Carnival Cake, made of flour, sugar, orange zest and juice, eggs and almond milk. It is a delicious spongy cake topped with powdered sugar and us, Florentines, use a model of the city’s symbol, the Fleur-de-Lys, to decorate this cake with cocoa powder. We call the the symbol of Florence giglio (it means lily).
