Portly Eats | Parrozzo | Abruzzo, Italy


I was surprised the other evening with cake and Prosecco. What more could you ask for? The Prosecco was good but more important was the cake. I was given Parrozzo, which is a traditional cake from the region Aburzzo in Italy.

The cake is part of the Christmas tradition here, it was first tried by a poet who lived in Pescara, Gabriele D’Annunzio, who wrote The song of Parrozzo.

The cake itself is made with semolina, egg, sugar, ground almonds and almond essence. It was really lovely! I’m a big fan of anything with almond flavouring so for me, paired with some Prosecco it was epic.

The cake is supposed to resemble a burnt loaf of bread hence its round shape and yellowish colour on the inside. Come to Abruzzo and try it for yourself, its really good!
