Where does cake come from?

The invention of cake originated in ancient Egypt as round, flat, unleavened breads that were cooked on a hot stone. The evolution of baked goods continued over many centuries through the introduction of new ingredients and the invention of new techniques of baking. The Egyptian’s discovery and skill at using natural yeast helped those flat breads to leaven.

Do You Love Tiramisu? Check Out My Fast & Easy Recipe For the Best Homemade Tiramisu

One of the first things that I think of when I hear or read 'Italy' is Tiramisu. I just can't help it. Of course, Italy has much more to offer then just their delicious Tiramisu.

Tiramisu is the most well-known dessert, it simply is the crème de la crème!

Tiramisu was invented by a confectioner called Roberto Linguanotto while he was working in his restaurant 'Le Beccherie' in Treviso, Italy. People say that tiramisu has aphrodisiac effects and therefore was served in brothels in Trevisto.

The name tiramisu comes from tireme su, which is dialect of Treviso for 'pick me up'. In Italian it's tiramisu.
