Rustic Chocolate Cake From Modica
Italy's biggest island is known for more than a few foodie secrets, and in the town of Modica, a beautiful Boroque wonder known for its numerous churches, they excel at something else too. That would be truly excellent chocolate, a crumbly-delicious-dream made from an ancient tradition brought over from their former Spanish invaders, who themselves learned from the Aztecs.
The best chocolate in town can be found at the Antica Dolceria Bonajuto, where Franco and Pierpaolo Ruta have remained the custodians of such an important local cultural heritage. Besides being eaten outright, you can make wonderful desserts using the chocolate too, which is why we came up with this delicious 'torta rustina' or 'rustic cake', made with less than 10 ingredients from scratch, which will bring about a smile to any chocoholics face.
