An Easter tradition here in catalunya is a special doughnut shaped cake, specifically made for children.
The Easter cake known as the “Mona de Pascua” has eggs in the centre. These were originally hard booked eggs, more tidy are more likely to be chocolate ones. It is most oven deviated with feathers and chocolate figurines.
This cake is especially representative of Catalunya and Valencia. The name derives from the Arabic word munna, meaning gift.
The tradition is that godparents make (Or buy) a Mona cake and give it to their godchildren on Easter Sunday, for it to be eaten the following day by all the family.
Easter eggs and other chocolate figures are often given as gifted too.
*** For Tales of the City fans Mona was a special gift for Anna... and Mona' s story is promised soon. ***
