(Southern?) Italian breakfast cake recipe?

bythebay | Apr 15, 2012 08:29 PM

Ever since I saw the movie "I'm Not Scared" a few years ago I've been obsessed with this breakfast cake one of the characters eats. I believe the movie is set in Southern Italy, if that makes any difference. If you watch this clip at around 1:00-1:50 a little boy eats some cake then offers some to a friend.

Do you recognize what it might be? It looks so good to me. The two recipes I found online for Italian breakfast cake are :

Any other ideas? In the film, it almost looks like there is maybe some kind of filling? Maybe almonds?
