I'm looking for a recipe for an italian cake. It sounds like "Jumbalone"

A very good friend was describing this cake he grew up with. His grandmother made it for special occasions. It sounded like he called it a jumbalone or jumbolon cake. He described it as a heavy yellow cake that she did in a bunt pan with a simple but sugary glaze on top.

He spoke so fondly of this memory that I would love to surprise him on his birthday with this. Any ideas what it could be?

inpatskitchen is on the right path here. Ciambella is a ring shaped cake. The "-one" suffix in ciambellone means big. There are also cookies called ciambellina. What they have in common is the hole in the middle.

Mario Batali's MOLTO ITALIANO has a recipe for ciambella with pear marmelade.
