“Panettone (pronounced /ˌpænɪˈtoʊni/; Italian: [panetˈtoːne]) is an Italian type of sweet bread loaf originally from Milan; usually prepared and enjoyed for Christmas and New Year in Western, Southern and Southeastern Europe as well as in South America, the Horn of Africa, and to a lesser extent in former French, Spanish and Portuguese colonies.
It has a cupola shape, which extends from a cylindrical base and is usually about 12–15 cm high for a panettone weighing 1 kg. Other bases may be used, such as an octagon, or a frustum with a star section shape more common to pandoro. It is made during a long process that involves curing the dough, which is acidic, similar to sourdough. The proofing process alone takes several days, giving the cake its distinctive fluffy characteristics. It contains candied orange, citron, and lemon zest, as well as raisins, which are added dry and not soaked. Many other variations are available such as plain or with chocolate. It is served in wedge shapes, vertically cut, accompanied with sweet hot beverages or a sweet wine, such as Asti or Moscato d’Asti. 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, zabaione is sometimes used as a substitute.”

“A fabulous festive treat and a wonderful alternative to the traditional Christmas Cake. Rich and buttery this is a yeasted cake so you do need to allow time for proving but it actually is so easy to make. You can make this in advance and spike it with brandy to keep it wonderfully moist before the big day. If you are not keen on candied peel simply replace for chopped nuts, chocolate chips or other dried fruit.” Continues on the website: Panettone gluten-free.

How to make gluten-free Panettone

“To me, Christmas morning smells like burnt panettone. After spending Christmas Eve cooking a huge meal, my mom did not make Christmas breakfast. Instead she burned panettone. And I loved it.
I’m sure she didn’t mean to burn the panettone. But the Italian holiday fruit bread never seemed to make it out of the toaster without singeing—sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. Looking back, I can see that paper-thin slices of a sweetened, rich bread never stood a chance in our toaster. And now, it’s hard to find a gluten-free way to recreate that taste memory.
Unless, of course, I made my own gluten-free panettone. With a little patience (this bread takes about 16 hours from start to finish), a sturdy mixer, and a few gluten-free flours, homemade gluten-free panettone is fairly easy.” Continues on the website: How to make gluten-free Panettone.

Your Very Own Gluten Free Panettone
“Around Christmas, I see Panettone being sold in every other store. I buy two or so for my family and inspite of my being gluten free, enjoy one slice and then pay with upset stomach. I never thought of baking my own because I had the impression that it was difficult to make and there are not many gluten free recipes on the web…” Continues on the website: Your Very Own Gluten Free Panettone.
