At the loveliest place Capri in Italy, we stayed in the other town on the island called Anacapri. Totally awesome so to speak. Like all around Italy we had some great food there but at the hotel we stayed in, our girls loved the chocolate cake served for breakfast. Torta Caprese, chocolate and almond cake, origins Salerno, on the Amalfi coast, south of Naples. The cake is named after Capri like the famous dish of tomatoes and mozzarella. It's soft and kind of light and super simple. Great as a desert but greater as a breakfast for the weekend! Read more for the recipe.
