Colomba with poolish

March 28, 2010 - 7:53am -- nicodvb


I implemented this recipe for the classical easter cake "colomba" from an italian pastry chef

but with some adaptions. The recipe calls for a stiff sourdough, something that I really detest because it requires many more attentions that I want to dedicate it and because it involves a lot of risks for the taste (acidity is always around the corner, not something you will like in a cake).
