Godzie (Apple Rum Olive Oil Cake)
If the tarte tatin was an olive oil cake, it would be the Godzie. Filled with the delicious aromas and flavors of the classic French pastry, we guarantee you’ll enjoy it immensely.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Casa Saporzi’s head baker is fluent in the Tarte Tatin. The classic French pastry is a constant in their home, and they were inspired to turn its delicious flavors into a cake.
The Godzie uses fresh and crisp apples, cooked in sugar and butter. The butter used, it must be said, is Échiré, the finest French butter from Charentes-Potiou with an Appellation d’Origine Protégée (AOP) status. The apples are then mixed and infused with a delicious double-aged dark rum from Jamaica and Barbados. The result? This magnificent cake.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
This olive oil cake is best enjoyed when it’s a little older. It’s tasty right off the bat, but letting it rest and “marinate” for a day or two will really bring out its flavors. The Godzie is delicious on its own. Enjoy a slice for breakfast, merienda, or dessert. Pair it with a nice cup of tea, or a cup of strong coffee. It’s also great enjoyed with a scoop of Kinako Vanilla ice cream from Kurimu.
A HOME KITCHEN FULL OF HEART
Casa Saporzi’s name comes from the word “sapor,” which pertains to the substance in food that produces taste and flavor. It is also an amalgamation of the names of the owner’s cats. This dual meaning perfectly reflects what Casa Saporzi stands for: quality food made with all the love of a home kitchen.
Constantly experimenting with new flavor combinations, Casa Saporzi assures that quality is never sacrificed. Using only the best ingredients, and careful research, you can be certain that each cake is a triumph. Every bite will have you excited for the next new flavor!
Keep olive oil cakes in an airtight container, either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. It will last for about 7 days at room temperature, and around 18 days in the refrigerator.
