Dal Colle’s Italian Classic Easter Cake Colomba is an exemplary version of the Milanese classic, a buttery dough filled with candied orange peel and covered in sugar and almonds. The pastry is rich yet airy and fluffy, with a moderately sweet taste.
In many European countries, it’s tradition to serve sweetened bread during the Easter holidays. In Italy, that traditional Easter bread is Colomba Pasquale, i.e., “Easter Dove,” aptly named for its dove-shaped form. Colomba dough is made similarly to Panettone, the traditional Christmas bread: with an ample amount of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. Unlike Panettone, Colomba doesn’t contain raisins and is covered with pearl sugar and almonds before being baked, giving it a crunchy, sweet top.
