Fried Dough with Sugar and Cinnamon
Makes 1 Loaf
The Colomba is a sweet bread similar to panettone but it is shaped like a dove and made during Easter all over Italy, most of it commercially these days. This bread, along with many others, was prepared on Good Friday and Holy Saturday, and eaten during Easter week. The recipe has come down through the Galasso family.
This recipe was featured on Season 6 - Episode 603.
Mary Ann, just to thank you for the wonderful book Ciao Italia Family Classics, it has brought back many memories past. The recipies are just like Mamma’s. Thank you again, you are a true Blessing and yes, it is sad that alot of our Italian traditions are becoming lost. It is our duty to keep tham alive. There is nothing more precious than family. God Bless, Sharon
