Ciambella cake with powdered sugar
Ciambella Is The Sweet Italian Breakfast Treat That Resembles A Donut
For breakfast in Italy, you'll likely encounter ciambella, traditional Italian donut-like cakes served as slices with coffee, strong espresso, or cappuccino.
Ciambella is easy to bake at home with simple ingredients, such as eggs, sugar, olive oil, flour, and lemon zest. Just note that this sweet cake should always be ring-shaped.
Baking ciambella in a tube or bundt pan increases its rise, lightness, and fluffiness. The key flavors are lemon and olive oil, making it moist, refreshing, and light.
