Panettone is a typical Italian sweet bread, an essential for the Christmas season! The Piedmontese variation differs from the classic Milanese recipe in its low shape and crunchy hazelnut icing.
The original recipe uses candied fruit, but new, equally unique versions of panettone contain pears, chocolate, or figs - all made with a slow leavening process (72 hours). These delicious breads are great covered in cream for a dessert or eaten by the slice for breakfast. It is also a classic gift during the holiday season to share with neighbours, friends, and family!
