White Chocolate Torta Caprese Recipe | Torta Caprese Bianca

I ate White Chocolate Torta Caprese in a restaurant in Milan and I really liked it, maybe more than the traditional caprese cake made with the dark chocolate. So I asked to give me the recipe for this Italian dessert that comes directly from the island of Capri.

You will see that it’s quite easy to make it. White Chocolate Torta Caprese – in Italy is called also Torta Caprese Bianca – is a cake made without flour, so it’s suitable for those who have to eat gluten-free. In addition to white chocolate, you need almonds, eggs, butter, lemons and above all limoncello liqueur that gives the cake a delicious flavor.

You don’t know limoncello? I’is an Italian lemon liqueur mainly produced in Southern Italy, especially in the region around the Gulf of Naples. Traditionally, limoncello is made from the zest of Femminello St. Teresa lemons, also known as Sorrento or Sfusato lemons.

White Chocolate Torta Caprese is a cake that is even better if eaten the next day, which is definitely a bonus because you can prepare it in advance. But please, sprinkle the icing sugar just at the last moment, before serving.

I love all red things, reading novels, Milan football team, spaghetti and dark chocolate. I have wonderful memories of my grandmother who Involved me in the kitchen from a very early age. She was kind and patient and generous with her time. Some of my favorite childhood memories involve being in the kitchen with her while she was cooking Risotto alla Milanese or Polenta. And the bonus of it was that she always made me taste everything.
