Loison Classic Colomba in Tin, 750g


Loison’s classic colomba is Italy's naturally leavened Easter celebration cake, studded with candied orange peel and topped with crunchy sugar and almonds. 

In Italy, these cakes are traditionally baked on Good Friday and enjoyed on Easter Sunday. Serve the light and golden cake with a morning Italian espresso, or enjoy with a mug of tea in the afternoon – perhaps with a dollop of mascarpone.

Decorated with a pastel floral design, the Loison-designed tin also makes a great gift for a host over the Easter holidays.

Loison has been baking panettones for over 75 years, started by Tranquillo Loison in 1938. Today his grandson Dario cares for the business. For Loison’s ‘top line’ colombos, panettones and pandoros, all the ingredients are carefully selected by Dario: the freshest eggs, butter and cream from Italy’s mountain farms, and fine Italian flours and sugar.

The cakes and breads are made with the traditional sourdough process. Each yeasted cake takes 72 hours from beginning to end, which gives rise to their exquisite texture and rich flavour.

Please note that there are two different versions of the tin, as pictured.
