You’ve never had a banana cake like this before. Deliciously sweet, with a nutty crunch and boozy hints, the Portis is moist, delicious, and addicting.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The Portis is an ode to an unforgettable cocktail the owner once had on the beach. It was so unforgettable, that they’ve made it their mission to recreate its flavors in a cake! To great success.

This olive oil cake uses the best local bananas, sweet and flavorful. Those bananas are then flambéed in aged Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which gives the cake vanilla, caramel, and oak flavor notes. Crushed walnuts are added in for a crunch that pleasantly contrasts the moistness of the cake.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

We know it’s difficult to wait when the aromas of the Portis are so appealing. But believe us when we tell you that this olive oil cake gets better with age. Wait a day or two before digging in, as that’s when the flavor really peaks.

Delicious on its own, the Portis is best enjoyed with a cup of coffee. It’s an anytime kind of cake, working well for breakfast, merienda, and dessert. Try it with a big scoop of Kurimu Kinako Vanilla ice cream.

If you’d like to go bold and pair this cake with the cocktail it was inspired from, check the Banana Foster cocktail recipe. Simple and easy to do. Ingredient include vanilla vodka, banana liqueur, butterscotch schnapps, chocolate liqueur and light cream.

A HOME KITCHEN FULL OF HEART

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.

Storage Instructions
