Known as the Easter dove, the Colomba di Pasqua is a sweet sign of Spring to most Italians. Made from a classic enriched dough, much like Panettone or Pandoro, it inhabits the space somewhere between bread and cake. Made from high-quality flour, farm-fresh eggs, sugar, butter, natural yeast, and finished with pearl sugar and almonds, it’s generally baked into a shape resembling a dove. Many legends swirl around how this cake was first created and why it is baked into this particular shape. While these legends may not be grounded in facts, there’s one inescapable truth about Colomba cake: it is addictively good! Bursting with flavor, it’s got that one-more-bite quality that will have you finishing it in a single sitting.
