The name panettone literally means large cake although technically it's a sweet bread. It originated in Milan and first writings suggest it dates back to the 1470's. These days it's not just the Italians who love this large cork-shaped cake: During Christmas and New Year it is served throughout Italy, southwest France, Spain, Portugal, Malta, Germany, Switzerland and most of South America. In fact competition is becoming so fierce the Italian agriculture minister tried to protect the origin of the cake through the World Trade Organisation. Pandoro is similar to panettone only it has no fruit and is usually baked in star shaped moulds. It's made from butter, sugar, egg yolks, water, flour, natural yeast, salt, vanilla and dried fruit. The most expensive panetonnes are made using a natiral Italian sourdough starter and the process from start to finish takes about 27 hours.
