This is authentic ciambellotto, a sweet loaf my great-grandmother used to bake in Italy. I still use her traditional recipe—the only update I made was for modern appliances.—Denise Perrin, Vancouver, Washington

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, orange peel and baking powder. In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk and oil until blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
  2. Shape into a 6-in. round loaf on a greased baking sheet. Brush top with egg yolk; sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cover top loosely with foil during the last 10 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Remove from pan to a wire rack; serve warm. Yield: 1 loaf (20 slices).
