The Bread Baking Babes celebrate Easter, Italian style…..
According to Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen, our host kitchen for the month, this is a traditional Easter bread from Bologna (one of my favorite Italian cities).
It’s a ring (ciambella) shaped bread flavored with almonds (mandorlata).
Some people think languages are so hard!
This is a slightly sweet (there is also lemon in it), brioche-style bread that keeps well – if you can manage not to eat it all.
If you are looking for an easy bread, but festive and a bit showy bread to make for this Easter, or any day, visit My Diverse Kitchen to get the recipe and the details for being a Bread Baking Buddy this month.
Here are the Babes’ Ciambella Mandorlata….
And that’s it for the Babes in April….
