Panforte are back and baked exclusively at the Hermitage!
This traditional dessert is a rich and chewy spice cake (the name means "strong bread" in Italian). It combines dried fruit and nuts, honey, sugar, oat and almond flours, and spices, all baked slowly to produce a moist, flavorful, delectable cake. It goes well with red wine, sweet wine, coffee, or tea, and makes a tasty snack at any time of day.
We're baking three flavors year-round:
All-natural & gluten free*!
Each cake weighs 8 oz.
*Baked in a facility that processes gluten.

Due to the severe ice storms of February 11th & 15th, the monastery has been without power, phones and internet for a prolonged period of time. This will likely continue for the indefinite future due to the severe damage from the storm throughout the entire region.
We are working to fulfill orders placed via our online store as quickly as we are able, however the process is very slow since we need to drive hours to town to download the orders, return to the monastery to print them off and package them, and then drive back into town to ship them since no mail or shipping services are able to reach us. We appreciate everyone's patience as we are doing our best to run our business during these circumstances.
Please pray for us!
