I love italian sweets above everything. But I do realize how much sugar is hiding inside. That's why although traditional italian cuisine is my favourite one, I need to be careful about how much of it I take in on regular basis. And I definitely cannot resist soft almond taste of these tiny amaretti biscuits sometimes. So here is my low sugar version. Let's get onto it!
"La Caprese di Zia Rita" is the original name of this recipe by Gino D'Acampo which inspired me. My version of this delicious dessert contains mascarpone cream which accompanies this cake very well . It is one of the easiest and the most chocolaty dessert I have ever made! This tart is also gluten free and contains low amount of sugar. Let's get onto it!
This recipe is so traditional and yet very international - across Europe. Traditional slovak "pirohy" might be compared to typical italian "ravioli" (or stuffed savoury pie) and the sauerkraut, complementing this dish in my recipe, is very typical, rustic part of the cuisine in Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria and Poland too. Not difficult to prepare, very fulfilling and nutritious meal, is also known for its cheap ingredients. Flour, potatoes, egg, onions and butter. Simple and good!
