Sweet and fluffy, panettone and pandoro are Italy’s most popular cakes for the holidays. While delicious served on their own, we like to dress them up for the holiday table.
Discover all the ways to pair panettone and pandoro with our guide below!
Warm up a few slices in the oven and serve with a scoop of fresh gelato. We prefer the simple flavor of fior di latte gelato, but pistachio and chocolate would play well too!
2. MASCARPONE CREAM
Mix together fresh mascarpone cheese with eggs and sugar and serve alongside a few slices of your favorite panettone or pandoro. Pro tip: add fresh berries for a beautiful presentation!
3. CHOCOLATE SPREAD
Pick up a jar of your favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread and spread on top. Trust us: you’ll want to leave the jar on the table for seconds.
For a lighter pairing or holiday breakfast, toast a few slices of panettone or pandoro and serve with a knob of butter and a spoonful of orange marmalade. The flavors of the marmalade will bring out the citrus zest and candied orange used in the panettone.
The most classic holiday cakes pairing of all? Italians enjoy these cakes most often with a cappuccino in the morning for breakfast or with an espresso in the afternoon as a dessert.
