Topped with almond icing, pearl sugar and almond slivers, this classic Italian Easter cake is dotted with candied orange peel. Its batter, which is made with flour and potato starch is flavored with Strega, vanilla and lemon juice. While it is typically prepared for the spring holiday, there's no reason you can't indulge throughout the year. For authenticity's sake, you'll need to invest in a dove-shaped colomba pan.

Ingredients

  • 150 grams all purpose flour
  • 150 grams potato starch
  • 200 grams butter
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 4 eggs

  • candied orange peel (chopped finely)

  2. Sift together the flour and the potato starch and combine with the butter.
  3. Add the sugar, eggs, liqueur, lemon juice, vanilla extract, baking powder, a pinch of salt, and candied orange peel, and knead thoroughly.
  4. Place the dough in a special colomba cake mold and bake it for approximately 50 minutes.
