We need to get a holiday bread section up because these questions are coming up a lot right now! Wait wait...I'm barely ready for Thanksgiving! ;)

Here's a few panettonne threads that have been posted here:


and I'm sure there are a bunch more! These discussions keep coming up, so hopefully you will find a good starting point from some of those! Good luck! and please come share your results :)

Our kids love Panettone - we call it "Mickey cake" here (From the Children's book "In the Night Kitchen" by Maurice Sendak), because it's the one time the kids get to have it for breakfast, and they like to recite the line "And that is why, thanks to Mickey We have cake every morning."

By far the best pannetone I've had was from Advanced Bread and Pastry by Michel Suas, page 381-3.

I've tried over a dozen and the best I found was in The Italian Baker by Carol Field
