Yesterday a friend and I popped into Panificio Monti in (surprise) Monti for some pizza al taglio and left with quite a bit more. The service there is quite…casual…so while we waited to place our order we plotted which dessert to get and decided on ciambella al cioccolato. The word ciambella means donut but imagine something with the density and consistency of pound cake mixed with cacao and bits of chocolate. And it’s not fried so that must mean it’s good for you!
