Pick Up Your Panettone Today!

Panettone is said to originate from the Italian word panetto, or a small loaf cake. Early written records call it pane di tono, or “luxury cake.” Written proof linking the panettone to Christmas goes back to the 18th century. It wasn’t until the 20th century that commercial bakers decided to make panettone in large-scale batches. This increased panettone’s popularity as a Christmas gift. When guests visit during the holiday season, a loaf will often be brought out and served with sweet wine or coffee. Some Italians serve the slices with a dollop of mascarpone cheese. Boxed panettone lasts quite a while, but it’s easy to freeze for later. This bread makes leftovers ideal for French toast or bread pudding!
