15 Traditional Italian Cake Recipes To Try

One of the best aspects of Italian cakes is that they aren’t overly sweet like other varieties.

These desserts enhance their sugary flavors with additions of fruits and liqueurs. Like other Italian dessert favorites, they go just as well with wine as they do with an after-dinner coffee. 

These are some of my favorite cakes to make at home for myself or to bring to a dinner party to show off.

There are many different options to suit anyone’s tastes, whether you’re in the mood for something fruit-forward or looking for a dessert with more savory notes. Plus, we provided links to recipes so you can recreate them!
