The Buccellato

The buccellato is a ring-shaped cake, whose recipe is very ancient; according to tradition, in the Middle Ages it was offered by the peasants to the lords at Christmas.

The buccellato is a traditional cake, its main ingredients are: flour, sugar, aniseeds, raisins; the pastry shops of the city guard the recipe jealously… this cake is widespread in all the province of Lucca, usually it is sold when it is fresh even if, however, the buccellato is good even after some days. If it hardens, it can be eaten, soaking it in the wine, perhaps a good vinsanto from Tuscany.

The Lucchesi (people of Lucca) are very proud of this cake, and there is a proverb that says: " Those who come in Lucca and do not eat the buccellato, have never been here".
