Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven at 350°F. Grease a 9 inches round baking pan.
  2. In a bowl mix sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add the sour cream, the oil, the egg and the vanilla extract. Beating quickly by hand or with a food processor add slowly the hot coffee ( or water).
  4. Pour the batter in the baking tin and bake for about 30- 35 minutes.
  5. For the frosting: in a big bowl, using an electric mixer, combine butter ad cocoa. Slowly add milk and icing sugar until you have the right spreadable consistency. Add the golden syrup and the vanilla extract, mix well and let sit for at least ten minutes. You can store in fridge, covered with cling film, for a couple of days; cold it has the texture of chocolate mousse and it's wonderful by the spoon: I suppose you are going to discover it by yourself.
  6. Spread a generous amount of frosting on the cake when it's completely cold.

  2. Let it rest covered for about one hour or until it doubles. Using a rollpin or a pasta maker spread your dough very thin, use some flour if it sticks. You can make a single big spread then cut it in irregoular shapes or spread single small pieces.
  3. Grease a baking tray with olive oil ( do not use baking sheets for this recipe!), put streghe on the tray, pin them with a fork to avoid bubbles then brush them with some tomato paste mixed with olive oil ( and a pinch of salt if needed).
  4. Sprinkle streghe with dry oreganon then bake in already hot oven at 430°F for about 8- 10 minutes. Watch them closely because they can burn in seconds.
  5. You can store them in an airtight box for days.
