Italian Panettone Bread

Tuesday, December 24, 2013
Panettone is a type of sweet bread loaf originally from Milan, usually prepared and enjoyed for Christmas and New Year in Italy.


At just about all specialty food stores, as well as a good number of regular supermarkets, you're going to find elegant boxes of this kind of bread during the Holiday season.


Even using this leftover in baked apple French toast, it is sure to please the family with a memorable experience.

We love many ways to use up panettone besides toasting making french toast or strata with leftovers.

Some of our other favorite Italian bread and cake similar is Pandoro which is a golden cake also  Amaretto flavored Panettone, made around the Christmas Holiday.

Our Favorite Christmas Morning



We just love Panettone slathered with melted butter on Christmas morning.


Not only is this a holiday bread but tradition we make year after year.


Grandma would let it rise overnight in a warmed area of the house back in the 1960s.


With all the modern methods, just heating the electric stove and placing a warmed wet cloth on top
usually does the trick for this bread to rise perfectly.

Easy to Make



Don't be afraid to try it out, it's easier than you think.


There are several reasons why homemade is the best tasting but the number 1 reason, it has no preservatives!

A Special Tradition



Being this recipe is over 100 years old and Grandma's specialty, it sure is one to make for us
every year to carry on not only the tradition of Panettone bread but in her memory.


Once you make it and see how beautiful and easy it is, you'll be hooked.


Panettone is sweet and perfect for breakfast or for me an anytime treat!

  1. Do you use all purpose flour or bread flour? I usually use bread flour and I only put candied chestnuts in mine. I love Panettone. It's my favorite of all time!!
