Christmas is almost upon us one of the reasons we love the holiday is because we can finally start eating our artisan Panettone, the Italian Christmas cake even though Panettone is not just for Christmas anymore, it has become an all year round cake, in fact, our master baker says that the best time to eat it is during the summer, because it is warm and it stays soft.
This beautifully, hand wrapped vegan panettone comes from a small town in Campania and is made using mother yeast and slowly risen for 48 hours, resulting in a light, soft, moist cake with a beautiful aroma filled with candied fruit and dried grapes. The classic, traditional flavour taken to another level due to the quality of the ingredients and being 100% natural. In this vegan panettone the butter is replaced with a vegetal product without affecting the lightness and softness of the panettone.
Our vegan panettone is really artisan, made in very small quantity by the pastry chef himself, Angelantonio, and made to order in his small laboratory, they are not industrially made and imported in the UK directly by us for you to buy online. To enjoy our artisan panettone at its best, it needs to be left a few hours in a warm room.
