The bakery “Dolci Capricci” also supplies the famous 'Giardini La Mortella' with sweets and cakes that leave their mark. An obvious and very rewarding example comes from a recognition of an English tourist who, with a letter sent to Silvana and Claudio, has enhanced the exquisite “lemon Caprese” tasted during his stay on our island green, at the Giardini La Mortella!
A dining experience not to be missed for your “Dolci Capricci” is no doubt, therefore, the special Lemon Caprese!
Ingredients for caprese in a baking-pan of 30 cm:
- 250 grams of sugar
- 3 whole eggs + 3 egg white
- 350 grams of chopped almonds
- 250 grams of butter
- 1 vial of essence of lemon
Beat egg white until stiff and set aside. Mix sugar and butter and place the eggs a little at a time and add the egg white with the essence of lemon. At the end add chopped almonds and mix. Bake in the oven for about an hour at 170 degrees.
