A delicious #chocolate #cake with a taste of #aubergine? It’s called “melanzane al cioccolato” and it’s a typical Amalfi sweet. On a sunday I couldn’t avoid posting about food!
This recipe was probably invented by the Francescan friars of Atrani, who used to fry aubergines and covered them up with a sweet and liqueur-based sauce. They exported the recipe in the other towns of the Sorrento and Amalfi coasts, changing slightly the ingredients and replacing liqueur with dark chocolate.
Here you can find the recipe of the aubergines you find nowadays.
