5. Colomba Pasquale (Easter Dove Bread)

food, dessert, baked goods, produce, snack food,

This is an Italian sweet bread made in a similar method to panettone, which is another Italian cake eaten over Christmas time.

However, Colomba does not contain candied peel or raisins like its Christmas counterpart, but is topped with almonds and pearl sugar.

It is a particularly pleasing Easter food due to it traditionally being in the shape of a dove.
