This Easter bundt cake is a typical Easter dessert widespread in various regions of Italy, especially in the Center-South. Known as pigna di Pasqua (that means Easter pinecone), it may change its name, sometimes its shape and some ingredients, but definitely not the the substance. It is always a delicacy with a simple and never cloying taste, that can be stored soft for many days. This dessert is cooked in a donut-shaped mold and, once cold, is decorated with a white frosting of egg whites, granulated sugar and many colored sprinkles. So let’s find out how to make a perfect Easter bundt cake by following our recipe step by step and enjoy it for breakfast or snack, along with a nice cup of hot tea.

Pour the dough into a 26-28 cm diameter donut mold, greased and floured. Level with the back of a spoon (5) and bake at 170 degrees C for about an hour. After the cooking time has elapsed, take the donut out of the oven and let it cool on a wire rack.
