Calabrian Torta di Natale

Is there a more specific name for this Calabrian Torta di Natale?

Certainly I can try this recipe, but would like some others to compare it to. And, of course, to be able to refer to it as its proper name, if it has one. If I knew its name, I could do more sleuthing.

I had one maybe 25 years ago, served by the mother of an ex-boyfriend of long ago, and it's haunted me ever since. She held onto that recipe like it was a nuclear launch code. I came across this photo, and would like to explore this taste sensation once again. Hers did not have the sprinkles, which I would prefer to leave off.

Thank you!

    1. This mother of the boyfriend didn't happen to be named Theresa, right?
