Colomba, the Easter Dove, is a delicious bread, traditionally served at Easter time. The dough is similar to panettone, made from flour, eggs, sugar, yeast and butter. It also has candied citron, but no raisins, and is baked in the shape of a dove.
I picked one up when we were in San Francisco, and we served it for breakfast on Palm Sunday.
Our Colomba was orange flavored, so we enjoyed it with butter and orange marmalade.
