Ore Liete’s Italian Classic Easter Cake Colomba is an exemplary version of the Milanese classic, with a light yet buttery and chewy dough covered in granulated 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.

The history of Ore Liete began in 1907 in Perugia when it got its start as a small family-owned bakery. The owners’ dedication to preserving traditional Italian recipes and maintaining high quality in the production process put the bakery in the spotlight not only among customers but among large corporations as well. Ore Liete changed ownership several times over its century of existence until, in 2016, it was acquired by the famous Tedesco Group. Throughout its history, Ore Liete has been known as a brand that combines beautiful flavors with elegant packaging.
