View Full Version : Easter time, Easter cake

Although born and bred up here in northern Milan,
I never actually enjoyed the typical norther festive cakes...

Xmas Milan's Panettone has a too heavy dough, and it's full of fruit candies and raisins... much better the Pandoro from Verona, a much lighter and airy paste, sugar-powdered and a heavy buttery fragrance wafting from the inside....

As for Easter that's even worse...
In the north we have the Colomba (Dove) and the Veneziana (venetian) cake, both a kind of watered down panettone, with their own peculiar but not very distinctive taste, which I basically dislike.

OTOH I don't like at all, with very few exceptions, the round-the-year southern pastry (especially sicilian and sardinian) ... too much honey, almond paste, too much crusty sugar icing.... marzipan and the like... bleccchhhhh.

But as every self-respected glutton of Neapolitan ascendance, Easter means PASTIERA!

I don't get it. If they hadn't killed The Man God there wouldn't be a pasha. It was all part of the plan?

Old song

"One toke over the line, sweet Jesus, one toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line
Waitin' for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
Hoping that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line"

No, they had free will so any silver lining was pure serendipity.
