    There is a town in the province of Torin (in Piedmont) named Ivrea, which is the home of a famous polenta cake created in 1922 called “La polenta di Ivrea.” This cake is traditionally covered with a drizzle of honey and orange juice.

You can turn to this easy, straightforward cake for a delicious addition to brunch, teatime, or dessert.
