When Cinzia ask me if I would like to join her, Elra, Lien, Natalia and Rosa to bake a real colomba (easter dove) I said immediately yes. A real colomba because the original is made only with sourdough and no yeast. I was a bit scared because until today all my attempts with sweet sourdough ended as a disaster: Pandoro, Panettone and Brioche. And unfortunately it was the same with the colomba. It didn’t rise at all even the sourdough was quite active. I don’t know why I’m not able to bake this kind of bread. So it comes today – on our colomba revealing day I have nothing to reveal. My colomba landed on the compost. R.I.P. my little colomba.
But wait, Cinzia announced the Happy Baking Easter event.
Everybody is invited to bake a colomba, and the best, you can follow the recipe you like. So I will try it again!
