Pantespani is a traditional light sponge cake, soaked in a light syrup. It can be served as is, with toppings such as whipped cream and strawberries (similar to strawberry shortcake), with some toasted almonds, or other toppings of your choice, and without the syrup as any other sponge cake. The tastes of orange, cloves, and cinnamon give it a lovely taste and fabulous aroma. Adapted from a recipe by Nancy Gaifyllia. Time to make doesn't include syrup cooling time. ZWT 4.
