Last Minute Christmas Gift – Panettone (Review)

We were recently gifted with a panettone from Sous Chef

I’ve almost finished my Christmas shopping. I only need to get a gift for my step dad and brother in law.

I am a really impressed with my organisation of gifts this year but what do you get last minute for those who don’t like drinking alcohol or for those who have everything?

A panettone of course!

Flamigni’s classic Milano panettone is a traditional Italian Christmas treat for the whole family.

Each fluffy panettone is carefully hand-finished to make a special gift.

I was really impressed that my order was with me the following day. It was boxed securely and when I opened it, I was surprised at how beautifully wrapped the panettone was.

Even the Elf on a Shelf liked it!!

Flamigni panettones take three days to make. This may sound like a long time, but they make every hour count.

The dough is slow-leavened for an exceptional texture when baked. Each panettone is shaped and scored by hand.

Flamigni don’t compromise on ingredients either, sourcing only the best quality ingredients no matter where in the world they have to go for them.

I couldn’t wait to tuck in! I cut out a large slice to share amongst the family.

Both my son’s really enjoyed it (age 4 and 6 years old) and I didn’t feel bad because it was full of fruit! Surely that counts towards your 5 a day, right!?

My husband was the one who enjoyed it the most. He kept cutting himself a slice.

The panettone was light, fruity and not to sweet. It was moist and went perfect with a cup of tea or glass of wine!!!

Panettone is definitely a lighter alternative to Christmas pudding.

Ingredients: wheat flour, raisins, candied fruit peels (orange peels, citron peels, glucose-fructose syrup, saccharose, concentrated lemon juice), butter (milk), egg yolk, sugar, natural sourdough (wheat flour, water), emulsifier: mono and diglycerides of fatty acids of vegetable origin – sunflower lecithin, invert sugar syrup, salt, wheat malt, natural flavourings, Madagascar vanilla extract.
