What Is Ciambella?

The Ciambella is a round cake that is traditionally prepared in Italy. It is similar to the Italian version of a bundt cake and is created with very basic ingredients. Ciambella is now commonly used to refer to any dough that is fashioned like a ring. In practically every region of Italy, you will be able to find ciambella in a variety of forms, ranging from a dough that is braided and solid to a doughnut-sized variant. Once upon a time, it was flavoured with straightforward flavours such as honey, lemon, or orange, but now days, you may discover a wide variety of flavours, such as chocolate, vanilla, or ricotta.

This recipe is also incredibly forgiving. Even if it doesn’t turn out perfectly, there’s an Italian proverb, “Not all ciambella have a hole.” You can always tell your guests that any less than beautiful cake is meant to look rustic and has been made like that for generations!

Ingredients

6 large eggs (at room temperature)
1 ¼ cups (10oz/284g) granulated sugar
1 cup (8floz/240ml) olive oil
Zest and juice of 1 orange
2 cups (10oz/284g) all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and generously butter and flour a 12-cup (3.85 liters) capacity bundt pan. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together, and then add the olive oil and orange zest, and juice. Whisk until combined.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt and then fold into the wet ingredients in three increments until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, and then invert it onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Dust with some powdered sugar before serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
