Colomba is the quintessential traditional Italian Easter cake – a fluffy and utterly delicious seasonal classic, it is formed into the delicate shape of a dove and given a moreish twist of peach and amaretto.
The Dove cake is part of the culinary Easter tradition of all of Italy. The Dove of the Cloister of Saronno is a confectionery product with a natural yeast, prepared according to traditional recipes with ingredients. Our highest quality productions are enjoyed throughout the world.
Chiostro di Saronno’s Colomba is a must-have for any Easter celebration, with a mythos dating back to medieval times – here infused with macaron-flavoured cream and candied peach pieces. Expertly crafted in Italy by an eighth-generation family, this cake is naturally leavened for 72 hours and then baked in the oven for the very best taste and texture. Each one is tied by hand in classic paper packaging and tied with string. Bring it as a host gift to an extended gathering, or enjoy it at home with a glass of prosecco or dessert wine.
