The Pastiera is a traditional Neapolitan cake that can’t be missed on the table in Naples and its surrounding area, especially during Easter. Most likely, the cake you’ll eat during Easter won’t be the one you prepared, but rather the one that a friend of yours, or a neighbour, offered to you. It is in fact tradition to give the Pastiera as a present to the ones you care for. As the process of preparing the Pastiera is fairly long, but not complicated at all, you have to begin making it on the Thursday (or Friday) before Easter. This way, you will have all the time to go visit your friend with a fragrant Pastiera and wish him Happy Easter!
