Panettone Cakes

Panettone Cakes

We have for many years been importing a very popular a brand of Panettone made by one of the leading Italian producers of Panettone, Pandoro and other seasonal leavened cakes Il Vecchio Forno, these cakes are made to the very highest standards and are extremely good value, perfect for enjoying socially or as gifts to loved ones.

Also for 2018 we have some delicious Artisan produced cakes from Sicily from our friends at Vincente. Lovingly hand made using traditional Sicilian ingredients.

A little history lesson .........

Panettone is the traditional Italian Christmas cake par excellence, and its birth is attributed to the city of Milan in the Middle Ages, although there are many legends surrounding its history: from the banquet of Ludovico il Moro (Ludwig the Moor), Duke of Milan, where a small attendant named Toni saved the day after the planned dessert was burnt, by an inventive creation with the simple ingredients left in the nobleman's pantry: a piece of leavened dough, flour, butter, raisins and little else, the famous sweet appropriately called Pan del Tonia (Tony's bread) was created.
