The – buttery and delicious – history of panettone, Italy’s own Christmas cake

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d'Italia

A Christmas without panettone is barely a Christmas in Italy: loathed or loved, the Milanese born sweet loaf is something everyone has in the kitchen this time of the year. Light, fragrant and pleasantly rich, panettone lovers relish its candied fruit aroma and its ultimate simplicity. Detractors dislike the raisins or the lack of cream fillings – at least in its traditional variety. Making it is a labour of love, time and luck: it is not simple to reach that perfect light, buttery fluffiness we enjoy at home.
