La Mole Savoiardi enhances the Italian dessert par excellence with their simple flavour. We are talking about the king of the desserts: the tiramisù!
So crumbly and light thanks to their foamy consistency they are ideal as a base for spoon desserts such as trifle and charlotte; excellent to accompany creams or ice creams and perfect to soak in milk in the morning.
Although the origin of the Savoiardi biscuits is uncertain, some sources trace it back to a dessert having the same dough, the gâteau (or biscuit) de Savoie, created around the middle of the fourteenth century by the chef (maître queux) of Amedeo VI of Savoy, in honor of the visit of Emperor Charles IV of Luxembourg. Later, thanks to the success, the biscuits were called Savoiardi and officially adopted by the House of Savoia, who reigned mainly in the current Piedmont region.
La Mole brand from Turin, Piedmont, is a bakery established in the 1978 taking the name from the world-famous "La Mole Antonelliana", the major landmark building in the city named after its architect, Alessandro Antonelli.
