With Easter almost here, I am having visions of Peeps and Cadbury Eggs. I’ve mentioned before my family’s Easter tradition includes a Bunny Cake. But many Italian families celebrate the holiday with a sweet Easter Cake. I personally have never had one before so I was so excited to when Nudo asked me to try their version. Nudo Italia has an absolutely delicious Colomba Easter Cake on their website for a limited time.
The Colomba cake is filled with tasty bites, including candied orange peel and amaretto. The dove-shaped cake (la colomba means “dove” in Italian) is topped with sugar and almonds.
This cake is huge, perfect for a large family. I ate this for breakfast and as a dessert (for a few days!) and loved it for both. The cake is fluffy and perfectly sweet.
The cake is delicious with a cup of coffee, espresso, or a hot chocolate. I went with hot chocolate and loved the pairing!
Nudo’s limited edition Colomba ($25) is available on Nudo-Italia.com now. It is the perfect addition to any Easter table, as well as the most delicious gift for a host or hostess.
