Boozy Aperol Spritz cake is the picnic food of dreams

Aperol Spritz cake

We are all Italian now.

Picnic season is here, and we finally have the weather to match.

Balmy summer evenings and lazy weekend afternoons are best spent soaking up the sunshine and eating all our meals al fresco – and as for what to eat, well, we have found the most perfect – and summery – treat.

We have long since embraced the tradition of aperitivo – the classic Italian cocktail hour – and the Aperol Spritz that is often served with it.

But just imagine how wonderful this cocktail could be in cake form, with all the same bitterness, citrusy flavours and just overall summer vibes?

Well, imagine no more, because PureWow has just shared the most delicious recipe for an orange yoghurt cake with just the perfect amouint of Aperol Spritz hints.

Sounds like what you want to be eating this summer? Us too.
