This large, round yeasted fruitcake from Italy, is traditionally eaten at Christmas. They are beautifully packaged in tall decorated boxes and available from Italian delis and some larger supermarkets, although they are generally only available seasonally.
Panettone can be served as a dessert, accompanied by sweet wine; it’s also delicious toasted and spread with butter, or used in place of bread in a bread and butter pudding.
