The real origin of Panettone remains a dilemma given the many legends and stories around it. According to one of the legends, Panettone is the result of a culinary mistake. Apparently, on Christmas day, the chef of Ludovico il Moro forgot the cake in the oven and ended up burning it.
To recover the situation, Toni, the apprentice, baked a cake with the ingredients he had to hand: water, flour, eggs, and butter. The experiment was such a success that they decided to call it after its inventor, i.e. “Pan del Toni” (Toni’s bread). Our Panettone is made with select ingredients and without food preparations and frosting. Unlike Toni’s ones, our Panettone takes some patience to make because we leave it to leaven for a long time. That’s why our Panettone is soft and incredibly fragrant - a joy to be experienced even after the festivities.
Another legend tells about a nun who, as a blessing, drew a cross with a knife on the dough she made with sultanas and candied fruit. Our Traditional Panettone is for those who love the original version, i.e. with candied orange peel and sultanas. It’s part of every Italian’s childhood memory. A cake to be eaten with your hands! Christmas wouldn’t be the same without it. But even after the holidays are over, Italians indulge in it to extend the magical atmosphere of Christmas.
Serve it with custard, mascarpone or Chantilly cream to satisfy even the most luxury-loving guests.
