How was the original pioneer born? It was in Spain where the history of this pastry dish began. It was conceived back in 1897 and its original version consists of a sponge cake well moistened in some sweet syrup, then rolled up and then its crown toasted. For whoever developed this dish, it seemed to resemble the silhouette of Pope Pius IX, hence the name.
