Malta – Gozo – Cassata

I will say in advance that this isn’t Greggs standard, it’s just the cafe which is located inside the ferry terminal at Gozo. But as I had some time before the next ferry, I thought that I would try one of their cakes.

I’m entirely confident that this probably isn’t the best example of a cassata, and it’s probably not meant to be served with a dent in the middle. I’d never actually heard of a cassata, but Wikipedia informs me that it’s “from Sicily, Italy and consists of round sponge cake moistened with fruit juices or liqueur and layered with ricotta cheese and candied fruit”.

I find that foods that are coloured green usually taste like mud, but this was a pleasant exception. Lots of healthy sugar, a moist sponge filling and some candied fruit on the top. All very acceptable before the ferry journey.
