Ciambella ferrarese or brazadella

The Ciambella ferrarese or "brazadela" is a rustic and dry cake, flavoured with lemon and served in every season in the city as well as in the countryside, to be dipped in local wines. The name Brazadela, derives from the fact that it was served tucked into the right arm, while the left arm was used to pour the wine. It is a very old recipe that dates back to 1250. In the past, this cake was prepared on special occasions because it was substantial and there was no money to buy chocolate or other sweets.
