An Italian pastry called Santa Noire

  • 5

An older lady friend of mine was recently reminiscing a dessert she had long ago in San Francisco called (to her recollection) Santa Noire. Her memory is also fuzzy on the details...maybe it's like a boston cream pie but more layers? But maybe not. It's the flavor she remembers, more so than the details. Any ideas? She recalls it being widely available.

  1. I suspect a Mondegreen here. "Santa Noire" sounds suspiciously like "Saint Honore," a cake with layers and creamy stuff in it.

    Just a guess.

          My favorite: "Captain Picard on the New Jersey turnpike." by Simon and Garfunkel.
          Although, with that footnote, I also liked this one.
