Yeast cake from Vicenza
This yeast cake could also be called a sweet bread or focaccia. The recipe comes from Vicenza in the Veneto region, where it is traditionally made around Easter. It is quite similar to the Colomba pasquale , the Panettone or castagnaccio chestnut cake for that matter in the sense that it is a not too sweet bread spiced up with vanilla and lemon zest. As such it makes a welcome and tolerably healthy addition to the breakfast or tea table.
