Are you looking for something really original to serve your guests for dessert after your big Easter dinner? Then let me recommend a Colomba Easter Cake from Nudo!
I had never heard of a Colomba Easter Cake, but I am so happy that I received it and tried it out! It is really one of a kind and now I know why Italians have made eating a Colomba Easter Cake a tradition every Easter! IT is DELICIOUS! Even my husband was gobbling it down and that is always the ultimate test (he is really picky!)
Nudo’s fragrant Colomba is flavored with amaretto, studded with candied orange peel, and topped with sugar and almonds and shaped like a dove (la colomba means dove in Italian) to symbolize peace and renewal for spring. The cakes are handmade according to a century-old recipe with Nudo’s first cold press EVOO, flour, eggs, sugar, and natural yeast. Accompanied by an espresso, a Colomba shared among friends is the perfect way to end the Easter meal, just as the Italians have done for generations. As they say in Italy, Natale con i tuoi, Pasqa con chi vuoi (“Christmas with family, Easter with friends”).
Snr Scarpato baked his first cakes in 1888, in a village called Legnano outside Verona. More than a century later, his same method is still used to hand bake these wonderful Easter cakes called 'Colomba Pasqualina'.
Buy It: You can purchase the Colomba Easter Cake for $25 from Nudo's website.
