Panettone filled with ice-cream, brandy soaked fruit and Vino Cotto

Panettone filled with ice-cream, brandy soaked fruit and Vino Cotto | Festa Bella Italia—A celebration of Italian food, wine, craftsmanship, culture + ingenuity | Scoop.it

Panettone is the Italian traditional Christmas cake which has a soft and buttery texture and full of candied fruit and raisins. It’s wonderful just as it is, but in a our family we stuff the Panettone with ice-cream and brandy soaked fruits. Use Vino Cotto to soak the cavity of the Panettone. It’s always a winning dessert. Buy a good quality Panettone or Pandoro (this variety does not have the candid fruit or raisins) for this recipe.
This recipe is best made a day in advance to allow flavours to develop and the ice-cream to set.

Italian's Insight to Travel Italy: Italian Christmas Tradition – Torrone from Cremona Recipe

Italian's Insight to Travel Italy: Italian Christmas Tradition – Torrone from Cremona Recipe | Festa Bella Italia—A celebration of Italian food, wine, craftsmanship, culture + ingenuity | Scoop.it
Until recent years Torrone was available from October through January and associated with Christmas. Today it can be found throughout the year and is a good substitution for the industrial candy bars. That is not to say that this treat does not have a lot of calories, simply that it is an antique recipe and most likely will not rot your teeth, it may break them if you are fortunate to find an original version, but it will not rot them....
