1/2 Photos of Italian Easter Cake “ Pastiera Napoletana”
For Easter in Naples and now every where in Italy, we prepare “Pastiera Napoletana”. Is a ester cake with some strange ingredients, and I’m not sure I can translate. I’ll try :-) An American friend tell to me that the “corn” in the recipe is actually a wheat, spring wheat, many Italian specialty shops carry the wheat around Easter time, it can come in cans (already cooked), some shops actually cook the wheat and you can buy it ready to go, and you can also buy it dry, look for “skinless wheat” if it’s dry. In this case, soak wheat for a few days making sure to change the water daily. The day before you make the pastiere, drain the corn well, and cook it for about fours hours in half a liter of milk, adding the rind of half a lemon and a pinch of salt. Cover the pan with a lid and allow to cook on a low flame. When cooked, scent the corn with the grated rind of half an orange, and add a pinch of vanilla.
