Crumbly Polenta Cake

Polenta is a widely used ingredient in northern Italy, including within dessert recipes.

This cake recipe sits somewhere between savory cornbread and the classic Zaletti cookie found around Venice. It is in the style of the classic Lombardian cake called torta sbrisolona or crumbly cake. And true to its name, this cake tends to create crumbs when it is cut into. It is, therefore, ideal when served with a large portion of creamy sauce (like our Vegan Zabaglione or Vanilla Cashew Cream) or a fruit compote.

Difficulty: simple
Yield: 23-cm (9-inch) round springform
