This is the first year that I purchased a Panettone.
I’m sure you have seen the festive, brightly colored,
hexagon shaped boxes at various stores throughout the holiday season.
Every Christmas season,
I see Panettone but for some reason I have never purchased one.
This year I decided to change that fact and
I bought a Panettone….
Delicious, citrusy, and fluffy.
Panettone French Toast Bake is the perfect dish to serve on Christmas morning
Panettone French Toast Bake is Delicious~
This classic Italian Christmas bread,
is very light and airy,
not at all dense and heavy…
like other Christmas fruitcakes or fruit-style breads.
The fruit was in nice bite size pieces and
the flavor was citrusy and delicious.
