|Panettone by the pallet-load in Italian markets.|
|Though not traditional, pandoro and panettone can come with chocolate,|
with creamy or jammy fillings, and sometimes complete with a bottle of bubbly.
|The shape of the bread resembled the hat worn by a friar name Antonio, who was very fond of the sweet treat. "Pane Antonio" became panettone.|
|Unfortunately it was so good that it was eaten|
before we got a picture!
|Here's another brand, this time slightly wider and shorter than most.|
|Pastry shops, bakeries and specialty stores offer plenty of bellisime choices of Christmas bread.|
