Panettone

Definition: Panettone


Panettone
A cylindrical, domed Italian dessert bread, panettone originated in Milan and is traditionally enjoyed during Christmas and the New Year. Like fruitcake, the fluffy bread contains candied citrus peel and raisins; however, the bread's natural leavening process, which requires dough to cure for several days, means panettone is difficult to recreate at home.

I always get it when I'm feeling down any time of the year.

i think that the first time that i learned about this break was when i was watching Giada on one of her many many shows. it's interesting to me to learn about that stuff - and this is a nice alternative to fruit cake but you still get the fruity-ness :)

I love this stuff!!! Hated it as a kid though. It's a little bitter because of the candied fruits and peels in it.
