alt + number pad 164 = ñ

I never said anything about a chicken. I said that my ex wife's family called their easter bread colomba pasquale; happy easter.

in sicilian, I just remembered it is cu instead of con as they use a lot of u endings; I said to my wife when we were in sicily how do they play scrabble without a thousand u's. bella in Italian is bedu, and so on and so forth. beautiful island is sicily. lovely people who were delighted that I had learned sicilian for the trip.

italian easter bread

Mangia Bene Pasta
Colomba di Pasqua (made with baking powder)
(Makes 2 loaves)

6-7 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
5 large eggs, divided
4 ounces unsalted butter, melted
1-1/4 cups milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 hard-boiled eggs
2 dark raisins
Colored sprinkles

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two baking sheets.
From a piece of paper, cut out a dove shape pattern that is 12-inches long from beak to tail and 7-inches wide.

Combine 6 cups of flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
In another bowl, add 4 eggs, butter, milk and vanilla. Beat until well blended.
Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix with your hands to form a dough.
The dough should not be sticky. If it is, add a little more flour.
Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead it until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
Divide the dough into two pieces.

Roll each piece of dough into a 13-inch by 10-inch rectangle.
Place the dove-shaped pattern on each piece of dough and cut around it. Remove scraps of dough.
Using scissors, make cuts in the tail to resemble feathers and one cut in the beak area.
Push one raisin in each dove for an eye.

In a small bowl, lightly beat the remaining egg and brush it lightly over each loaf.
Place 1 hard- boiled egg in the middle of each dove body.
Cut 2 thin strips 4-inches long from dough scraps. Cross 2 over each egg.
In a small bowl, lightly beat the remaining egg and brush it lightly over each loaf.
Sprinkle the loaves with the colored sprinkles.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the loaves are lightly browned and firm to the touch.
Remove to cooling racks.

I think I also saw a yeast recipe; do you wish to have it,

columba pasquale is what my ex wife's family called them and they were from abruzzi; columba means dove and they were shaped like doves

pupa con l'ova or doll with egg (in Sicilian) and I understand how that sounds like buba-glove.

pupa does not mean doll in Italian; in Italian the word for doll is bambola. in Sicilian pupa means doll but that word is a remnant of the french invasion.

THANK YOU, my grandmother came to America in 1888 from the Tuscan region, and this is just like her recipe except the flavoring was almond. I am going to try this recipe cause I liked the anise biscotti I had while visiting Sicily.

buona pasqua,

my grandmother had a recipe for Pigna bread also. it could not have been spelled the way you have spelled it for the y which is Greek sounds like the letter i. the g before the n makes the n sound like the Spanish n with the tilde. Italy wasn't united until after 1860 so you have as many languages (dialects) as provinces. it really doesn't matter what they call it they are still great eats.

thank you we make a ricotta cheese pie using rice instead of wheat which calls for citron which no one in our family likes, so we substitute crushed pineapple that we put in the sink in a potato ricer and whenever we pass the sink we give the ricer a squeeze; we also use this dried pulp like pineapple in canoli.

I am going to try your pie with the pineapple. thanks again,

Pastiera - Italian Easter cake

thank you,

'corn' is correct in Italy and much of Europe where the major crop is called corn; not so in the USA where Indian corn or maize is called corn. you need to replace the word corn with wheat or winter berries.
