gubana

rich ring cake filled with walnuts and raisins

gubana

The name is derived from the Slovene word for 'fold' for its swirling filling. Originally an Easter cake made in the Natisone valleys, gubana (or gubane) is now a year round favourite, marbled with a mix of ground walnuts, pinenuts, raisins, lemon zest and sugar.

Cividale del Friuli celebrates Gubana Day every February, awarding a prize for the best cake.
