Colomba Easter Cake

Price £19.95

500g
No traditional Italian Easter table is complete without La Colomba, a light and fragrant leavened cake made with candied fruit and baked in the shape of a dove, the messenger of hope, peace and renewal.
Seggiano Colomba cake is made near lake Garda by master baker Beniamino and his three daughters. His skill and experience guarantee a truly artisan and naturally moist cake, without using the standard trans-fatty industrial emulsifiers.
The Colomba dough is leavened overnight using their 30 year old mother yeast and next morning is mixed with a richer dough, made with local honey, organic eggs and sulphite-free candied fruit peels. Left to rise twice more, the final touch is a traditional crunchy almond glaze topping with whole nuts, before the cakes are ready to bake.
A batch of cakes takes two days - that’s what artisan means.
