Bauducco Panettone Review and Giveaway...

2011 Holiday Gift/Entertaining Guide: Hostess/Dessert

"Enjoyed for centuries as a holiday staple in Italy, panettone, a moist, sweet specialty cake - has only recently become widely available in the United States. Made in the authentic Italian fashion, Bauducco Panettone incorporates the highest quality ingredients like Sun-Maid raisins and in a new take on tradition Hershey's chocolate chips. While it is delicious on its own, it can also be a star ingredient in many recipes including French toast and bread pudding. It even tastes great topped with Mascarpone and paired with a glass of Port or Proseco. In addition to being served by friends and family throughout the holiday season, panettone is also typically given as a hostess gift in many countries, in lieu of flowers or wine."

What we thought:  Okay, I must admit, I have seen this at our grocery store for the last couple of years around Christmas.  And quite often I have seen it marked down for quick sale.  I was always wary about trying it, but let me tell you, after reviewing it I can't wait until I see it at my grocery store this year!  We will be stocking up.  This tasty treat is fantastic!  Before trying it I was concerned with the consistency (it comes in a box, so I was a little apprehensive, you know?)  However, Bauducco Panettone has got to be the most moist cake from a box I've ever had!  Even fresher than many bakery cakes I've had!  First, we tried it plain for breakfast.  It reminded me of a really decadent pastry.  Then we decided it would make a fantastic French toast and we were right!  It was super easy to make a fabulous rich and filling breakfast
for a few overnight guests we had.  They thought we slaved in the kitchen for hours until we showed them the bright yellow box:)  Next up, we will be turning the raisin variety into bread pudding...I cannot wait!!  Bauducco Panettone would be great to have on hand to serve your guests this holiday season and would make a really great hostess or teacher gift.  ABCD Diaries gives Bauducco Panettone an A+!
