The Cuddrua is a “cake” traditionally served at the end of the Easter meal in the Salento, Puglia. We’ve called it a “cake” because it can savoury or sweet, but always decorated with one or more hard-boiled eggs.
If you fancy trying your hand at preparing a Cuddrua here is the recipe in English, translated from an original on nelSalento and adapted.
500 g plain flour (type 00)
200 g granulated sugar
200 ml extra virgin olive oil
20 g of baking powder
20 ml of warmed milk
hard-boiled eggs, coloured sprinkles and chocolate chip or grated chocolate to decorate
