Legend has it that panettone was originally created as a love token by a young Italian baker named Tony, who added butter, raisins and candied citrus peel to bread, in an attempt to impress his sweetheart. Today, panettone is a sign of celebration, usually enjoyed at Christmas, not just in Italy but around the globe. With its light, soft and buttery texture, panettone is a delicious, summery alternative to traditional fruitcake.
Our artisan Panettone from Flamigni and Fiasconaro are delicious, and the perfect alternative to a heavy Christmas cake! However, if you happen to have left overs this is a great way to make use of them.
