Colomba cake with almonds Quick and easy recipe

Colomba cake with almonds: this cake has the appearance of a dove, although in reality it is a simple cake with almond flour and ricotta. I used the recipe for a dessert that I often prepare for breakfast, the soft almond cake, I really like it because it is moist inside and very fragrant. Perfect for Easter breakfast or to give as a gift instead of the traditional colomba which has a very long and laborious preparation.

Another alternative to the traditional colomba is the one with short leavening: Colomba quick recipe
