The holiday season is quickly approaching. During this time, delicious snacks and desserts are on everyone’s mind. For me, the priority is to find the best products that I can easily bring with me while on the go. Something that is authentic and loved by many while able to survive in the trunk or backseat of my car. This is where the classic Madi Gran Panettone Italian baked cake comes in and takes the trophy.
Panettone bread cakes have been made for hundreds of years. The traditional method of Panettone making requires using live sourdough mother yeast and giving it a lot of time. I found the Madi Gran Panettone cake to be such a treat. It’s delicious with accents of citrus and orange peel flavors. The cake itself is also moist and fluffy. Very addictive and full of surprises in every bite.
This Madi Gran Panettone cake is made using a live 100% sourdough yeast that is over 50 years old! How’s that for a tradition?
