The origin of this cake comes from the legacy that the Jews left in Catalonia. Although the original recipe is not known, the Olot aniseed cake is made from a mixture of flour, eggs and sugar and is plaited. However, it is the aniseed that gives it its unique taste, sure to leave no palate indifferent. This is a dense cake usually eaten with some kind of beverage, such as Ratafia, which makes an excellent accompaniment.
