Rachel Roddy's recipe for marsala cake | A kitchen in Rome
Sicily’s famous fortified wine makes for a versatile ingredient – and lends this sponge the flavours of zabaioneIf I could afford it, I would always have a bottle of marsala made by the De Bartoli family on my shelf. When there is one there, there is no one I would rather share it with than my partner Vincenzo’s parents, Bartolomeo and Carmela: for their bright glee at the sight of the bottle, the twisting squeaks of its cork, its escaping scent, its amber glow and that first sip, like almonds and iodine, caramel and wood. Also, marsala is not called a fortified wine for nothing: sips are warm and strengthening, not that my mother-in-law needs any assistance when going into battle over a game of cards.Marsala, named after the Sicilian city in the western province of Trapani, varies hugely according to who made it, much like any wine. Its character is defined by the grape from which it is made – most commonly white (catarratto, grillo, inzolia), although sometimes red – and how the nature of that grape is encouraged or manipulated by the grower and maker. The grape used affects the colour, too; you might see marsala defined as oro (gold), ambra (amber) or rubino (ruby), but bear in mind that the colour can also be affected by additions.
