Where to find the best schiacciata alla fiorentina in Florence

Here are the Florentine pastry shops where you can taste the softest cake in the world

Schiacciata alla Fiorentina is to all intents and purposes a historical dessert: already mentioned by the famous nineteenth-century gastronome Pellegrino Artusi, it certainly has a very ancient origin and in the eighteenth century it was also called "Schiacciata delle Murate" because it was made by the nuns of the homonymous convent in Via Ghibellina, and when this was transformed into the sadly famous prison, the dessert continued to be served... as the final course of the last meal of the condemned.

But let's get to it, here are the best schiacciate alla fiorentina in Florence in the best bakeries in Florence (for those with a sweet tooth, don't miss our selection of the best cenci and frittelle in town).
