Artisan work: today, like yesterday
The secret of our Colomba cake lies in fine selected ingredients and 72 hours of patient work
. We take our time and pay attention to every step of the baking process in order to preserve both quality and flavors
of all our leavened products. As a result, we bake soft spongy
delicacies that are also easy to digest
Today, like yesterday. Grandpa Tranquillo’s old recipe
has been passed down from one generation to the other.
Our sourdough starter
is the result of the spontaneous fermentation of wheat flour, water, milk and fruit that were blended and set aside. This is where we get the slightly sour-smelling and tasting natural yeast that makes our leavened products soft and easy to digest.
As in the old tradition, our artisanal Colomba cake is made with the sourdough. We knead the dough then let it rise for a number of times after a portion of the starter dough has been fed with water and flour. The secret lies in the experience of the baker.
We add the basic ingredients, including flour, water, eggs, sugar, butter and only natural aromas step-by-step. We carry out the kneading, portioning, modelling and garnishing by hand
. Finally, we deliver our Colomba cake in elegant packaging solutions created by Sonia Design.
