    A traditional Maltese dessert prepared especially for Carnival. The name 'prinjolata' comes from the word ‘prinjol’ which means pine nuts in Maltese. The prinjolata is a delicious carnival cake that is instantly recognizable from its unusual shape. When ready, the prinjolata resembles a snow capped mountain.

    A great stand-by dessert. I use it over and over again. I've suggested apples and blackberries in this recipe, but I've done it with all sorts of things like raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, rhubarb, pears, mango, orange, tinned peaches. Just adjust the cooking of the fruit to suit your chosen fruit or preference. I've cooked the apples and blackberries but wouldn't bother with tropical fruits for example.
