    Um Safia's Note:

    Well this is famous Italian honey and nut cake from Tuscany. It is a Christmas specialty but these days it is eaten year round and is fantastic with a good cup of coffee! In Italy this Panfote is sold in pretty boxes and served in VERY thin slices. From the book: "The Complete Book of Italian Cooking".
