A classic in every Italian household during Christmas time.
The Panettone is one of the most difficult breads to make for a baker: it takes years of experience to master the technique, the 'Pasta Madre', (the stiff sourdough starter that's in use normally in Italy), the create the perfect recipe for the environment you're working in, and to find the perfect balance of flavours that make this bread a unique experience.
Our recipe comes from 16+ years of experience in the industry: Debs has worked in several bakeries in Italy before moving to England, and Buzzing Bee's recipe combines the places, flavours and experiences that she's had.
To leave nothing to chance, Debs has even found a way to make her own citrus paste, by cooking slowly tangerines, oranges and lemons with a bit of sugar and water, then blend it all together to add to the Panettone, and give it that depth of flavour that you'd expect.
The proving time takes almost 40 hours: we feed the starter 3 times in 12 hours, then prepare the first dough, let it prove for 12 hours, then the second dough, and let it prove for further 12-16 hours, then bake it. This is the traditional way that's made in Milano since before the 18th century (first recorded appearance is in 1599!), and now you understand why proper Panettone is so expensive!
- the classic 'Milano', with sultanas and candied citrus peel (in the pictures),
- the Chocolate, with chocolate chips.
Please note that the height of the panettone may slightly change, but the weight is always the same.
Due to limited space, we will make a small number every week until Christmas, so you might not receive it on the exact date you ordered it for, but WE WILL SHIP/DELIVER ALL ORDERS ON TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!.
The Panettone needs to be kept well wrapped in its packaging and it'll last for up to 3/4 weeks, but we do advise to not wait to eat it later than a week upon receiving it, as we are not responsible for incorrect storing and we do not use additives or preservatives (the panettone may dry out). Please contact us if you need any info on how to store it correctly.
LAST SHIPPING DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS IS ON THE 19TH OF DECEMBER.
PLEASE PLAN AHEAD! DUE TO IT'S LONG PREPARATION TIMES WE CANNOT TAKE LATE ORDERS.
