Loison Peach and Piemonte Hazelnut Colomba, 500g


Loison’s peach and Piemonte hazelnut colomba is a rich, sweet Italian cake traditionally enjoyed for Easter. Enriched with jewels of lightly-candied Italian peaches, world-renowned Piemonte IDP hazelnuts and Madagascan vanilla, this cake has a delicate balance of aromatic and nutty flavours. Its sweet fragrance and buttery richness fills the room when unwrapped. More toasted hazelnuts and white sugar sprinkles top the cake for a gentle crunch that compliments the light texture.

Colomba cakes are slow-leavened - baked on Good Friday to be  enjoyed with the whole family on Easter Sunday. Their golden colour and airy texture is much like a Christmas panettone, except the colomba traditionally takes the shape of a dove .

Enjoy a slice of this cake with a morning espresso for a luxurious breakfast, or with a cup of tea for a mid-afternoon treat. A colomba also makes a unique Easter gift, perfect  if you’re looking for something more imaginative than an Easter egg.
