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!
