Italian Colomba Cakes

Colomba cake, also known as Colomba di Pasqua, is a delicious Italian Easter cake that's shaped like a dove, which is the symbol of peace and rebirth.

It's similar to the famous Italian Christmas cake, Panettone and made with flour, butter, sugar, eggs, and yeast. It's then flavoured with orange zest or candied peel and topped with a sweet almond glaze and pearl sugar. The dough is mixed and left to rise, after which it is shaped like a dove and baked in the oven.

Colomba cake is traditionally eaten during the Easter holidays in Italy, and it's a wonderful sweet treat to enjoy with family and friends. It's soft, fluffy, and bursting with flavour, making it a perfect addition to any Easter occasion.

So, if you get a chance to try Colomba cake, don't hesitate! It's sure to bring a smile to your face and joy to your taste buds!
