Pio Quinto is a Nicaraguan dessert. It consists of cake that is drenched in rum and topped with a custard dusted with cinnamon. Some recipes also include raisins. It is eaten after meals or during Christmas time.
The name is that of Pope Pius V, but the connection is unknown. There is also a Pio Quinto River in Nicaragua.
