Making Panettone

Panettone is a type of sweet bread loaf originally from Milan (in Milanese it is called panaton),[1] usually prepared and enjoyed for Christmas and New Year in Italy,MaltaBrazil and Switzerland, and one of the symbols of the city of Milan. It contains candied orange, citron, and lemon zest, as well as raisins, which are added dry and not soaked. In some regions of Italy, it is served with crema di mascarpone, a cream made from mascarpone, eggs, sometimes dried or candied fruits, and typically a sweet liqueur such as amaretto; if mascarpone cheese is unavailable, zabaglione is sometimes used as a substitute.
