PANETTONE

Panettone is traditionally eaten throughout Italy and the world by Italians during the Christmas period. The origin of panettone is from Milan where we consume it all year round. It is a tedious and long process to make, but always worth the while.

For some time we every year imported a 10 Kg Albertengo Moscato Panettone from Albertnego in Italy.

  1. looks absolutely delicious!

    But what is 260 g Biga (50:50)? Half and Half (cream / milk)?

    and the 15 g Natural Live Yeast – would that be commercial yeast in a bottle?

    I have baked two in December – one did not work very well – I used sourdough yeast (soetsuurdeeg) as raising agent. I bake lovely breads with the yeast which I made myself, but the same yeast did not work very well for the Pannetone

    Then I made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liGQB0B6OzM and it worked very well – was tasty and it smelled amazingZ

    Yours look amazing – are your family from Milan area?
