A holiday tradition for those who grew up in Italy or in Italian-American households. Classic with candied orange peel and raisins.Panettone has a long history and many stories of its creation. We particularly like the legend of the court of the Sforzas, whereby the court cook had no cake to offer on Christmas. Instead the guests were served a sweet bread baked by a kitchen boy named Toni, and in praise the bread was named after him.
Panettone dough rises over several days to achieve the soft yet stranded texture. This long curing of the dough, with the addition of dried or candied fruit brings forth a wonderful texture and fragrance.Panettone is served for dessert, often with trays laden with cookies, torrone and panforte. Some prefer it on the table at brunch. Later in the season, use the last of it for the best French Toast you have ever had.
Our panettone is moist and sweet, crafted in Italy by artisan bakers. Slice into wedges to serve.
