Perfect Christmas Treat!


Classic Panettone Bread


Panettone is a traditional Italian Christmas bread that originated in the city of Milan. The word panettone comes from the Italian word for “big bread.” Panettone is made with a yeasted dough that is filled with candied fruit and raisins. The dough is then baked in a tall, cylindrical mold. Panettone is typically enjoyed around Christmas time, but it can be found year-round in many Italian bakeries.

While the traditional panettone recipe calls for candied fruit and raisins, there are now many variations of the cake available. Some bakeries make chocolate panettone, which includes chocolate chips or chunks in the dough. Other variations include panettone with liqueur-soaked fruit, Nutella filling, or ricotta cheese. No matter what the filling, panettone is always a delicious treat!
