Miaccio – Miaggio – Migliaccio

Miaccio, also known as Miaggio or Migliaccio, is a traditional dessert from the Marche region of Italy. It is a sweet cake made with wheat flour, eggs, sugar, and ricotta cheese. The cake is typically flavored with lemon zest and vanilla extract, and it is often served with a dusting of powdered sugar on top.

Miaccio can be found in many towns and communes throughout the Marche region, including Ancona, Pesaro, and Urbino. It is often sold in local bakeries and pastry shops, as well as in specialty food stores and markets. Some popular places to find Miaccio include Pasticceria Scarpellini in Ancona, Pasticceria Cesarini in Pesaro, and La Bottega del Buon Caffè in Urbino.

There are many variations of Miaccio, but one popular recipe involves mixing together 500 grams of ricotta cheese, 200 grams of sugar, 4 eggs, the zest of 1 lemon, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Once the mixture is smooth, 100 grams of flour are added and mixed in until the batter is thick and creamy. The batter is then poured into a greased cake pan and baked in a preheated oven at 180°C for 40-45 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Miaccio is recognized as a traditional food product (PAT) by the Italian government, which means that it is a food with a specific cultural and historical significance to the region. The specifications for Miaccio include the use of local ingredients, such as ricotta cheese from the Marche region, and the traditional preparation methods that have been passed down through generations of bakers and pastry chefs.
