The Kyushu Loaf is moist and soft and absolutely sublime. Made with real matcha from Kyushu, Japan, it’s a well-crafted delight. The matcha flavor is prominent, never overwhelmed by the sugar or olive oil, which is how you know it doesn’t skimp on quality.
The Kyushu Loaf is not overly sweet, making it the perfect dessert to an elaborate and special dinner, where rich food is served. As Japanese flavors go extremely well with each other, pair this cake with a nice yuzu-infused cocktail.
Of course, you don’t have to wait for a nice dinner with all your friends to enjoy this cake. The Kyushu Loaf is incredible on its own, and doesn’t need any icing or powdered sugar. Have it for merienda, with a nice cup of tea—it’ll definitely hit the spot.
If you are able to get a hold of some fresh yuzu juice, you’d also find that it pairs refreshingly well with this cake.
Casa Saporzi is founded by The Bow Tie Duck’s Co-founder and Chief Operations officer, Raizza Encinas. She started Casa Saporzi as a baking project to allow her to have days (outside of Bow Tie Duck work) to be in her favorite place, the kitchen. The one true place that she feels grounded and that allows her to unwind.
Her love for the kitchen is inspired by her late grandmother Columbina, the homemaker of a family of seven kids. Her grandmother was so engrossed in the kitchen during her days that she started amassing a collection of her own recipes, typewritten (with a typewriter!) in little index cards. These recipes, both for scrumptious, homey dishes and loved baked desserts, have been been passed down within the Encinas family and has inspired a number of members, including Raizza, to continue the tradition of home cooking and home baking.
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.
Casa Saporzi offers a range of home baked treats such as olive oil cakes and cookies and will soon offer a variety of original creations.
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 16 days in the refrigerator.
