    awalde's Note:

    For many years my mother prepared this ring-shaped cake for our breakfast! My children love this super easy ciambella too. They spread some margarine and sugar over the slices and Yum... This is a souvenir in honor of my parents!

      Lovely, dense cake. It reminds me very much of the Almond Rusk my Mom made for my Sis and me when we were little. I halved the recipe and baked it in a loaf pan. I used a combination of orange and lemon zest and apricot brandy. Wonderful flavor.

      Easy and delicious. This is a firm and just-sweet-enough cake. I made individual little cakes, so they cooked a bit faster. If you're using the english measurements, be sure to note that the margarine is given in weight ounces, not volume ounces.

      This is a delicious and simple breakfast cake. I made it for ZWT #7's trip to Italy. I baked it in a bunt pan and might reduce the cooking time next time to 25 minutes. It is best sliced thinly with a little butter and a sprinkling of sugar. Go team Witchin' Kitchen!
