A Ciambellone is a traditional Italian Bundt cake. It’s a simple every-day cake. One you would make to have in the house for the kids for an after school treat, or just when you feel like something sweet, but not too indulgent, with a cup of tea or coffee. Growing up, my mother always liked to make me a marbled cake. Always the same three colours, chocolate, yellow (vanilla) and pink. This cake can be served simply with a dusting of icing sugar, or drizzle with icing as I have done.
