Colomba pasquale or colomba di Pasqua (“Easter Dove”) is an Italian traditional Easter Bread, the counterpart of the two well known Italian Christmas desserts, Panetonne and Pandoro.
The dough for the Classic Colomba is made in a similar manner to panettone, with flour, eggs, sugar, natural yeast and butter; unlike panettone, it usually contains candied peel and no raisins. The dough is then fashioned into a dove shape (colomba in Italian) and finally is topped withpearl sugar and almonds before being baked.
This year we have some delicious NEW Flavours of Colomba including Peach & Amaretti, Chocolate & Orange and Morello Cherry. These are not to be missed!!
