Since I launched into summer recipes with peppers and with these beautiful days (closed at home), I decided to prepare another classic dish that I always do in the summer. #iorestoacasa
It seems strange to propose a recipe of peppers this season, but I must admit that they are the ones I found in my ten minutes of air when I went shopping. Their color has conquered me, a touch of joy and a prelude to summer. And of course … #iorestoacasa!
For the wine I chose a Sicilian white, Carricante, which is the basic grape variety of Etna Bianco. I like it because the slightly salty finish balances the sweetness of the raisins without being intrusive.
I wanted to call this sweet Plum-cake of waiting, because we are experiencing special days and I like the idea of fixing this moment in time and then looking back and smiling at all of this. This is an experience too and as such we must treasure it.
The sugar in the syrup softens the driest notes and the wine in turn makes the dessert less cloying. In addition, the pink color creates a pleasant nuance that can become an effect decoration for a special (romantic) occasion.
