The problem is, I don’t make cakes, haven’t in about 30 years. I just happen to not like cake. One of the few I do like is a sponge roll with jam, simple and light. I don’t like frosting either. So I went online to find cake recipes, and studied my cookbooks. I chose about eight different types, but none of them really excited me. Then it came to me! I’ll make an Allegretti cake.
