Every Christmas Eve, my husband and I go to one of my favorite bakeries in Manhattan, Sullivan Street Bakery. Not only do they make my FAVORITE bread, they make the BEST “panettone” I’ve very eaten in my life (even in Milan…sssshhh). Panettone is a Christmas specialty from Milan. It’s a slightly sweet bread with raisins, citrons and has a slight rum flavor. It’s one of my family’s favorite holiday treats. To buy the bread, we get to the store super early, so to avoid long lines and to make sure they don’t run out before we get there; which has happened. In my house, one loaf of panettone doesn’t last very long. Needless to say, we have to buy a few to last to Christmas morning.
I was surfing Martha Stewart’s website and saw these cute little individual panettone. I never thought to try to make it. I didn’t think I could! It seemed too complicated. I read the directions of the recipe and decided to try. You know what? I made them, and they turned out really good. If you always wanted to try to make panettone, and didn’t think you could, I encourage you to try. You’ll be surprised.
Buon Natale (Merry Christmas)
