    nitko's Note:

    It is believed that Rab Torte was served for the first time in 1177. when Pope Alexander III, escorted by his ten galleys, was overtaken by a storm as he was crossing the Adriatic, and took cover under the cliffs and in the harbors of Croatian island Rab (and town), and thus by a quirk of fate arrived in Rab just after the renovation of the Cathedral of the Assumption, which he consecrated on the occasion. In order to enhance this unexpected ceremony and to express their respect, nuns of the Benedict order served him cake on the host – Rab cake. The original recipe for the first Rab cake is kept in the archives of the Benedictine abbey of St. Andrew on the southern coast of island Rab. I am posting the recipe of madam Dunja from “Vilma Patisserie” from town Rab.
