Time, passion, natural sourdough, and ingredients like butter, honey, and vanilla pearls is what Andrea Tortora needed for his new spongy Easter creation: the registered trademark PandUovo.

The chef surprised us in 2018 with Uovo di Tortora ®, a half egg that maintains the ingredients and traditional preparation of the Italian Colomba Pasquale. In 2022, he innovates once again with this PandUovo in which he has used old family tin-plated iron molds that were used to produce chocolate eggs in the 1940s when polycarbonate did not exist.

Next, we share the detailed step-by-step instructions for this creation.

Ultimate by incorporating the emulsion 3 times, which must be prepared at least 24 hours in advance, so as to guarantee a cold but plastic temperature.

Assembly (for 1 kg panduovo)

Divide the dough into 850 g pieces, turn them and let them rest for 10 minutes at 25°C, 55% humidity. Turn them again and insert them in previously greased molds (if the molds were not Teflon coated). Let it proof for 12 hours at 27-28ºC, until the dough reaches the edge of the mold. Bake in a ventilated oven at 165°C, 45 minutes, valve closed and 10 minutes valve open for a total of about 55 minutes. The core temperature should be 94 degrees. Remove from the oven, let it rest and cool for 6 hours at room temperature. Packaged. Dust with powdered sugar before tasting.
