This delicious Almond cake with Modica chocolate is produced only in a small baroque town in Sicily.

Modica is a small town in Sicily. It is a beautiful baroque town that, in 2002, was included, along with the Val di Noto, in the list of Unesco’s World Heritage Sites for its historic center, rich in Baroque architecture.

Modica (Sicily, Italy)

Unlike regular chocolate, Modica chocolate has a particular character; it appears grainy and friable, with grooves on the surface and a dark black color. Depending on the type of chocolate, an opaque surface can be presented, just like what I used in this recipe, with brown reflections. And thanks to its cold preparation, it is unique; the sugar granules are visible in the cocoa, giving the chocolate an extra tasty sensation.

Modica Chocolate

Modica chocolate has been recognized as a Traditional Agri-food Product, and since 2003, the Modica Chocolate Protection Consortium has been born.

The “cold” preparation of Modica chocolate is still processed like how the ancient Mayans worked it, ensuring that all the qualities of cocoa, its nutritional values ​​, and its components, such as flavonoids and powerful antioxidants, are highly concentrated and kept intact.
