We were in Coles in Wagga Wagga a few days ago and we found that they still had a whole heap of panettone left over from Christmas.
And the prices were heavily reduced. So we bought four.
Panettone is made from a sweet yeasted dough and is actually classified as a bread, not a cake. And that's what allows this recipe to work. Kneading creates and strengthens bonds of the wheat flour protein gluten.
