Easter and Christmas bread (some call it cake) but GOOD for any celebration!!!!!!
This bread is made in Venice (right near the Austrian and Slovenia and Croatian borders) and in Fruili-Venezia Giulia (Italy)
The Gubana is a brioche-style enriched dough flavoured with orange and vanilla with a filling containing nuts, raisins, cocoa, candied fruit and Grappa, Rum and Marsala. It is rolled like a Swiss Roll and then spiraled into a snail shell shape.
Also known as a Eastern European pastry as potica, kolachi, gubana or bejgli.
