For sure this traditional Italian Easter yeast bread called „La Colomba“ (Easter Dove) will not be missed on any Italian table. It’s shape recalls the dove symbolizing peace and resurrection.
The dough is soft and fragrant, rich in butter and eggs, mixed with pieces of candied oranges. The almond icing is applied before baking, giving it a sweet, crisp crust. Here is a recipe for those who want to bake it!
