Stunned as you may be, this is a post not about Korean food..! In consonance with the extremely hot weather here in Korea, I have been making a lot of Mediterranean food...Spanish, Italian, Turkish, etc. In the course of which, I came across a recipe for this cake, called Sformato. It is a flourless cake made from ground almonds, eggs and oranges. I've had about five goes at it, the recipe is wonderful and the cake turns out every time. I love it. I can eat three servings a day.

I was just wondering if anyone out there knew anything more about this cake. How did they invent this? Is there some sort of history behind it? Who had the genius to come up with a flourless cake made of eggs, almond and oranges? Do any restaurants you know serve this? I am just really into this cake.
