Panettone [Italian Christmas Cake]

Nothing says Christmas to Italians like a slice of delicious panettone cake with a cappuccino, café latte, or sweet wine. Originating in Milan, Italy this classic sweet bread loaf dates back to the 1500s. It was previously referred to as "pane di tono" which means "luxury cake”, which it most certainly is. Its fluffy texture, nuts, and candied fruits make it the perfect dessert and gift this Christmas! Today it can be seen in almost every Italian household throughout the holiday season! Ideal for baking during a cold winter day!
