The Italian breakfast, spelt flour and cocoa ring cake. Guest post for Kulsum of Journey Kitchen

I have been admiring Kulsum’s blog for months, in love with her Indian recipes, with that Middle Eastern hint that makes her tasty dishes even more interesting and appealing. How have I been able to meet Kulsum, born and brought up an Indian Bohra household in Kuwait? Twitter is the answer, and the reason I’m here today with a guest post regarding the Italian breakfast!

As a grown-up, my daily breakfast is now a cup of jasmine green tea with two slices of toasted bread and a translucent spread of home made jam, but as a child I adored the ciambellone, our home made and rustic ring cake, a classic of many Italian family breakfasts.

This is not a fancy cake, you won’t see this golden brown ring cake in a patisserie window next to glossy macarons and deep chocolate masterpieces. Tough, I assure you that you can find it on a morning breakfast table in many Italian houses, lovingly sliced by the caring hands of mothers for their sleepy children, or generously spread with home made fruit jam by hungry students ready to face a new day.

Follow me at Kulsum’s Journey Kitchen to read the recipe!
