Panettone – Festive Bread

Living in Milan, I am seeing Panettone everywhere during this time of the year. Yes, it is getting close to Christmas. Panettone is considered as festive bread, eaten during Christmas Season. The shape is described as a big “cupcake”, but the texture is bread, not cake at all.

Panettone has an origin from Milan, Italy. The Milanese locals would call it “Panaton”. It is bread baked with raisins and orange peels, finely chopped. Traditionally it is served after Christmas dinner, a slice of Panettone and a glass of sparkling white wine would finish the meal… It is considered as a celebration for Christmas. Cheers!

You can have it whenever you like… it is sold everywhere. Many Italian eat it with coffee as breakfast… it is so good! So yum!
