This traditional Italian Christmas bread is also suitable for elevenses, afternoon tea or breakfast. Enjoy!
Altered ingredient amounts. Fantastic recipe! My only negative comment is that I too found it a little less sweet than what I have found in other recipes...it can be cured easily with a 4 tbsp sugar or honey. The time is worth it! - 14 Jul 2008
I'm so disappointed with this recipe. The rise was great, but it's just like a normal bread recipe - nothing special and certainly not the cakey, super light store bought Panettone I was hoping for. I hate it when I make something that's actually not nearly as nice as a store bought equivalent. I couldn't taste the vanilla or lemon at all when cooked and the texture was just like a bog standard home made loaf. I was soooo optimistic having read the comments and now am all deflated - 18 Dec 2011
Great recipe - I made numerous mini versions of this recipe for Christmas gifts last year. They all turned out really well and everyone loved them. - 08 Dec 2010
