Serves 8 to 10
This cake stores very well in an airtight container or under a glass cake dome in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. The cake texture becomes slightly more dense and the overall flavor more intense after at least 6 hours in the refrigerator. Bring the cake to room temperature before serving with whipped cream and, according to tradition, a cup of strong coffee.
