Sienna Panforte



  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 300F (150C). Butter and line a 10-inch springform pan with parchment paper, on the sides and the bottom. Butter parchment (or spray with food release).

  • 2.

    In a large bowl, combine nuts, peel, raisins, flour, cocoa and spices.

  • 3.

    In pot over medium heat, cook sugar, honey and butter until it reaches a temperature of 245F (120C) (about 8 to 10 minutes). Working quickly, pour syrup over nut mixture, stirring until combined. The panforte stiffens quickly, so immediately spoon mixture into pan and spread to edges of pan.

  • 4.

    Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan completely. Wrap and store at room temperature.


A nice twist might be to add a shot of espresso instead of cocoa...
